Exhibit & Presentation: The Salisbury Quilt
November 20, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
|The Bennington Historical Society presents Carol Corey-Dziubek who will share the remarkable signature quilt that has been in her family since 1888. Since her own retirement, Carol has been researching the quilt, documenting the genealogy and family histories of the 96 people whose names appear on it. In this presentation, Carol will discuss various types of quilts, the construction of this particular quilt, and delve into the stories of a couple of the individuals named on it. She will also touch upon the political climate in Vermont in 1888 – there is one Democrat signature on the quilt, amidst a sea of Republicans. There will be time for close examination of the quilt as well.
