A day of remembrance will be observed on Sunday, September 11, at the Hubbardton Battlefield State Historic Site for those who wish to contemplate or honor heroes from the past and present. The museum and facilities will be open, free of charge, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The site offers quiet and tranquility within its beautiful, open, rolling meadows and scenic mountain views.
The Hubbardton Battlefield is the site of the only Revolutionary War battle fought in Vermont. It is one of the best-preserved battlefields in the country and looks much as it did the day of the battle – July 7, 1777. The historic site is located on Monument Hill Road six miles east from Vermont Route 30 in Hubbardton, Vermont, or seven miles north from Exit 5 on US Route 4 in Castleton. Follow the signs carefully. For more information about the Battlefield or this event, call (802) 273-2282.
The site is open Thursdays through Sundays and Monday holidays from 9:30 to 5:00 through October 10. Regular admission is $2.00 for adults, free for children under 15.
