Lady of the Hills Opening Reception

Friday, October 25, 2019

In 1938, Sergeant-at-Arms Dwight Dwinell carved a statue of the Roman goddess of agriculture to adorn the dome of the Vermont State House. For 80 years, the statue, now known as Ceres II, stood watch over our Capitol before being replaced in 2018. Join the Vermont Historical Society (VHS) in welcoming her to her new home at the Vermont History Museum, where she will serve as the centerpiece of our newest exhibit, “Lady of the Hills”. Remnants of Larkin Mead’s original 1859 statue, carving tools donated by Dwight Dwinell’s family, as well as period photography will now be on display, along with the head of Ceres II. The body of the statue will join the exhibit once its conservation & stabilization is complete. VHS will also unveil our new donor recognition wall and share even more updates to our "Freedom & Unity" exhibit. A special thanks to the Pizzagalli Foundation, the Farm Families of Cabot Creamery Co-operative, and the State of Vermont for making this exhibit possible.
