Barre Historical Society is kick starting a wood fired bakery renovation. Wallingford weighs the pros and cons of a Town Hall cell phone antenna proposal. Waterbury plans a municipal complex groundbreaking.
The town of Wallingford is considering a proposal to add a cell phone antenna to the historic town hall’s cupola. There are already two antennas in the clock tower, but a proposal to add a third antenna has the attention of the Vermont Department of Historic Preservation.
In 1913, Italian granite workers in Barre built a wood fired bakery where they could bake crusty Italian bread, like back in the old country. The shell of that building still stands, in downtown Barre, next to the Socialist Labor Party Hall. Both buildings are owned by the Barre Historical Society, which is organizing a community-wide effort to restore the old bakery and operate it as a living museum.
