The Middletown Springs Historical Society will host their annual meeting on Sunday, Sept. 25, at the Historical Society building. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. and follows with a presentation on renowned Vermont gun expert Terry Tyler.
Tyler, who lives in Dorset, Vt., has collected Vermont-made guns for more than 50 years. With Harry Philips, he wrote the acclaimed book "Vermont’s Gunsmiths and Gunmakers to 1900" in 2000. More recently, he sold his collection to the Shelburne Museum, which is now exhibiting “Lock, Stock & Barrel: the Terry Tyler Collection of Vermont Firearms,” through Oct. 30.
At the Middletown Springs Historical Society annual meeting, Tyler will talk about his adventures in gun-collecting and research, as well as some of the intriguing history of Vermont gun making.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call David Wright at 802- 235-2376.
