The mission of the Vermont Heritage Network (VHN) is to stimulate awareness and appreciation of Vermont's cultural heritage and built environment. This site has been designed in the fall of 1997 as a working framework of resources and information for residents, tourists, teachers and students. The easiest way to navigate the VHN is via the hot link logos on the first page. If there is something specific you are looking for, visit the VHN Table of Contents.

Who created the VHN?
The Vermont Heritage Network has been created by the University of Vermont Historic Preservation Program class of 1997: Mark Brebach, Gabrielle Bourgerie, Meg Campbell, Brian Knight, Russell Newton and Elaine Park. Faculty advisors include Tom Visser, Interim Director of the HP Program, and Emily Wadhams, instructor for Historic Preservation Contemporary Practice. Other advisors include Elsa Gilbertson of the State of Vermont Division for Historic Preservation, Julie Bressor of Shelburne Farms and Norwich University, and Hope Greenberg of the University of Vermont Computer Information and Training Program. Special thanks to all those people whose historic preservation-related photographs we have included our pages. The site will be maintained by future students in the program. This is a student project and views expressed are those of the students and not those of the University of Vermont.
This site has been made possible through the funding support of the Windham Foundation, the Vermont Community Foundation, and the Preservation Trust of Vermont.
