  3. Third Thursday: What Say You, Elder?

    October 17, 2019, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM @ Vermont History Museum

    Rev. Daniel “Elder” Field (1805-1883) was born in Springfield, Vermont. He was “called” to become an itinerant Methodist minister, serving various communities throughout Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York State. Rev. Field retired from the full-time ministry in 1863 to a small farm in Williamstown, Vermont, where he spent the remainder of his life, occasionally filling in at local churches as a “supply” minister. It was during this time that many stories about “Elder” Field, as he was known, began to accumulate, showing his droll, wise, and sometimes eccentric ways. Adam Boyce relates stories handed down from his family and other sources about the pithy parson. Third Thursday talks are free & open to everyone.
