The history of a town on the northern bank of the St. George River, as told by representatives from Thomaston Historical Society, Thomaston Public Library, Montpelier: the General Henry Knox Museum, and students from Georges Valley High School. Architecture, General Knox, the Civil War, the Great Depression, and the state prison are some of the topics covered.
Eleven communities comprise the Western Foothills Region, all interconnected yet each with its own unique, rich history. This site is the beginning of the towns sharing their stories with the world, each other, and the next generation. Working closely with local schools, six historical societies came together to help the next generation understand the heritage of their area. We invite you to explore our exhibits that celebrate the individuals and events that formed our communities.
