EAST BOLTON CEMETERY RESTORATION
Check out the WCAX story on the Bolton History Group’s work on the East Bolton Cemetery. We’ve cleaned about half the headstones in the cemetery. Thank you to all the people who worked together on this project!
Histories of Bolton
A History of Bolton Vermont was written in 1989 by Gardiner Lane, a longtime and beloved Bolton resident. Eighteen original documents are an appendix to “A History of Bolton.”
West Bolton at the Turn of the Century by Gardiner Lane
Walking Back in Time – The West Bolton History Trail
This booklet was prepared for the Vermont Army National Guard by the University of Vermont’s Consulting Archaeology Program.
Vermont PBS has granted permission for Bolton to post the 1972 documentary: And the Water Came Down From the Hills: The 1927 Flood. While the documentary does not address Bolton specifically, it captures the historic impact of the flood.
Thanks to the generosity of the Richmond Historical Society and the Betty Preston family Bolton received a gift of six pictures of Bolton after the November 1927 flood.

Authorized by the Vermont Historic Preservation Act of 1975, 22 V.S.A. chapter 14, and administered by the Division for Historic Preservation, the State Register is part of a program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect Vermont’s historic and archeological resources. Sites and properties listed on the State Register reflect the prehistoric occupation and historical development of our nation, state, and local communities.
Over 30,000 of buildings, structures, sites and historic districts throughout Vermont are listed in the State Register. Being listed does not, in itself, impose any obligation on the property owner, or restrict the owner’s basic right to use and dispose of the property as he or she sees fit.
