Montpelier Chronicles : Historic Stories of the Capital City (Paperback) (Paul Heller)
about this item
Four years after the American Revolution, Colonel Jacob Davis paid tribute to France by naming his settlement Montpelier in 1787. Disasters, industries and larger-than-life personalities helped shape the city's identity. And it didn't take long for Montpelier to make a name for itself--its location created a prime manufacturing hub, and the Vermont Central Railroad made travel convenient. The city also became the scene of the fire of 1875 and the Gould-Caswell murder. Join local historian Paul Heller as he compiles significant moments of Montpelier's past.
