 A Stitch In Time, Townshend, VT 1753-2003

Hard-cover, full color book of Townshend’s history. 288 pgs. Hundreds of photographs.

Excerpt from book:
A Stitch In Time book cover“At a meeting in Massachusetts of Townshend’s charter grantees in 1761, it was voted that the person who got to Townshend first would have the first choice of lots. Colonel John Hazeltine went home and passed the night. Early in the morning, he said to his wife, “Jane, put some bread and cheese into the saddle-bags”; and to his boy, “Peter, lead up the old switch-tailed mare, for I am going to Townshend.” And so begins the story: of settlers arriving on horseback, and on sleds drawn by oxen; of farming and mill-working; of marrying and soldiering.”

 Aldro Hibbard Prints: On Sale to Benefit the Stone Arch Bridge Restoration Project

“These Arlo Hibbard prints had formerly been on sale in Hibbard’s Rockport, MA art studio. Although these are copies and not originals–they are quite charming and depict Hibbard at his best in Vermont.”

Aldro T. Hibbard, the painter, (1886-1972)  “played baseball during the summer in Rockport, MA, and painted in East Jamaica, VT,  during the winter,”–according to his granddaughter, Marrin Hibbard Robinson.  One of the few plein air artists who relished the cold, Hibbard was fascinated by the light and shadows that played across the snow, the waters, and the mountains of Vermont.

Increasingly in demand over the years, Hibbard’s original oil paintings are found in many museums and prominent private collections.  

Proceeds from the sale of Hibbard prints are currently designated for the Stone Arch Bridge Restoration Project which has recently been undertaken by Townshend Historical Society.  

NOTE: These prints are copyrighted and cannot be reproduced. Supplies are limited.

Shipping is included in the price of all prints.
