Hardwick Historical Society

Welcome to the Hardwick [Vermont] Historical Society

The Hardwick Historical Society (HHS) is a small collecting repository and museum dedicated to preserving the history of the the town of Hardwick, its settlements, businesses, and people. The HHS has its museum in the restored Hardwick Railroad Depot, where it serves researchers and exhibits materials relating to the granite and railroad industry, local schools, the Civil War, Hardwick’s business community, and its people. In addition to museum exhibits, the HHS holds its archival materials — a large collection of documents and images as well as a complete collection of Hardwick newspapers back to the mid-1890s — at the Depot. Come see us.
