Introducing our new staff member in Vermont

February 16, 2016

Charlotte Barrett

Historic New England is pleased to introduce Charlotte Barrett, our new Community Preservation Manager, Western New England. Her office is located at the Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History in Middlebury, with whom Historic New England is partnering on a two-year alliance.

Charlotte graduated from the University of Vermont with an M.S. in historic preservation. She was formerly a director and consultant for the Preservation Education Institute in Windsor, Vermont, and a field representative for the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Charlotte is Historic New England’s first full-time staff person in the Green Mountain State.

“I’m excited about this opportunity to develop a presence for Historic New England in Vermont, as well as to serve as the alliance liaison with the Henry Sheldon Museum,” says Charlotte. “I couldn’t ask for a more perfect marriage of my background in historic preservation and museum studies. Having lived and worked in northern New England for thirty years, I have deep roots in and a passion for working with the communities of Vermont to preserve their past and share the stories that continue to inform the present. I’m eager to form partnerships with the many organizations already doing good work in Vermont.”

Hi Charlotte...big news! Congratulations! Please be in touch when you have a chance. We hope you'll be a regular at the Preservation Roundtable! Good luck!

Vermont History Expo

Posted by Bonnie Tocher Clause on April 20, 2016
Dear Charlotte,
Congratulations on your new position! I just received the April newsletter from Historic New England, and I was surprised that the Vermont History Expo isn't listed on the calendar (as it has been in years past). As you probably know, this year it's on June 18 & 19, and I hope to see it turn up on the next edition of the calendar. I noticed as well that Vermont isn't listed as one of the "filters" for events on the calendar ... something you might fix? Note: I have no official standing to make these recommendations; I'm just a member of the Vermont Historical Society and a passionate (albeit part-time) Vermonter!
Cheers,
Bonnie

Historic New England calendar

Hi Bonnie,
Thank you for your note (and passionate, part-time Vermonters count!). The Historic New England calendar only lists events organized or sponsored by us. We expect to be planning more Vermont events now that I'm based in the state, and you will be sure to see those listed on the calendar. Best, Charlotte

2016 Historic Preservation & Downtown Conference

Posted by Ron Wanamaker on June 9, 2016
Hello Charlotte,
I'm sorry I missed the opportunity to meet you when you met with my fellow Preservation Burlington board members. I hope you might be at the conference tomorrow and we can say hi. If not I hear you may be in the area to have lunch or dinner with my friend Nancie Ravenel. Perhaps we might catch up then?
Best
Ron W
