Ludlow Woolen Mill

Do you know of anyone in Ludlow or the surrounding towns who worked in or is familiar with the woolen mill industry in Ludlow?

The Ludlow Elementary School sixth graders under the direction of their teacher, Heidi Baitz will be gathering oral histories of people who have been in that environment. If you have had that experience or know of someone who has, please contact Georgia Brehm at the Black River Academy Museum so you can make an appointment to talk about your experiences there. Georgia can be reached at 802-228-5050. Your information is invaluable to our community and we appreciate all of your help in gathering this history. Thank you in advance for your help.

“…part oral history, part nostalgia-tinged narrative, and part clear-eyed analysis of the multifaceted phenomena collectively referred to as the counterculture movement in Vermont.”
