A day of remembrance will be observed this Friday, Sept. 11, at the Hubbardton Battlefield State Historic Site for those who wish to contemplate or honor heroes from the past and present.
The museum and facilities will be open free of charge from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The site, with its beautiful open rolling meadows and scenic mountain views, offers quiet and tranquility.
The Hubbardton Battlefield is the site of the only Revolutionary War battle fought in Vermont. It is known as one of the best-preserved battlefields in the country and looks much as it did the day of the battle-July 7, 1777. It is located on Monument Hill Road 6 miles off Route 30 in Hubbardton or 7 miles off exit 5 on Route 4 in Castleton. Carefully follow the signs.
On Saturday, Sept. 12, a guided hike to nearby Pittsford Ridge will be led by site interpreter Carl Fuller. The hike, 2-5 p.m., starts at the museum at the Hubbardton Battlefield with an introduction by historian Kate Kenney of the University of Vermont Consulting Archeology Program.
For more information about the 9/11 event or hike, call 273-2282.
