A photographic exhibit to celebrate the history of Goddard College in Central Vermont, from its original roots at the Goddard Seminary in Barre in 1863, to the 1938 move to its current location, the Greatwood Farm in Plainfield, this exhibit includes:
  • Photos of the historic Greatwood Gardens, designed in 1908 by renowned landscape architect Arthur Shurcliff;
  • Photos from the early 1900s at the Goddard Seminary in Barre;
  • People and scenes from the Goddard Experiment in Education in the 1960s and ‘70s;
  • And current College photographs to complete the 150-year-old story of Goddard College and the people and places around Central Vermont.

The photographic exhibition traces the evolution of Goddard College from its Universalist roots at the Goddard Seminary in Barre, the move to Greatwood Farm in Plainfield in 1938, and the impact of the radical educational and social and arts experiments that took place there from 1938 to the present day.

This event is part of a yearlong series of events to celebrate Goddard’s 150th Anniversary and the arts in Central Vermont.
