"The Historical Society of Wilmington, VT and TSN - The Student Network, Inc. are pleased to announce the release of the DVD

"Life in Wilmington: The 1930's and The Flood of 1938"

A couple of years ago the society received a call about a couple old nitrate films that were found in a museum closet in Massachusetts.  The films were labeled Wilmington, Vermont.

We are now selling copies of this 78-year-old, well-preserved film, which depicts life in Wilmington during the 1930's. The footage includes scenes from 1934 to '36 Deerfield Valley Farmer's Day Fair and the aftermath of the flood of 1938, as well as a ball game at Baker Field.

Bob Edwards from TSN – The Student Network has interviewed several Wilmington residents, past and present.  He has now put this all together on a DVD for the historical society to sell.

It is a well-documented piece of Wilmington history that you are sure to enjoy.
