The Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History, Middlebury, Vermont is the oldest chartered community history museum in the United States, welcoming visitors and researchers since 1882. It offers lively tours, exhibits and programs to enrich our understanding of Vermont’s past. The Sheldon has three parts:
