This year the Black River Academy Museum’s annual pot luck dinner is being combined with a program about “The Great Turkey Drive”

You are probably saying I have never heard about this before but believe it or not, back in the 1800’s up to the early 1900’s farmers would move their turkeys from the northern part of Vermont down into Boston for sale. The farmers actually walked their turkeys that distance.

We are talking about thousands of turkeys. Hear the story of these drives as farmers and their families made their way along narrow roadways and fields and across rivers to their destination.

Join us for an evening of delicious food, turkey, being the main item on our menu and hear about the fun facts of this infamous trek. Bring your appetite, a side dish or dessert, and join us on Thursday, November 2 from 6-8pm at the Church of the Annunciation in their community room on 7 Depot Street, Ludlow.
