Thunderbolt
Dr. John Wilson – a.k.a. “Thunderbolt”

Visitors to the museum have been delighted by the quality of our collection, which has been described as “one of the most intriguing small collections in Vermont.”

Two floors of exhibition space display impressive examples of Vermont furniture, folk art, early portraits and Civil War artifacts. Clothing and textiles, children’s toys, photographs, military equipment, and tools all tell stories of Windham County’s history. Local favorites are the story of the highwayman “Thunderbolt” and the history of the West River Railroad. Church records, manuscript collections and our library are available for researchers. School visits are encouraged. We invite you to visit, explore and enjoy and the Museum.
