Shelburne at 250! Did you know that Shelburne will be celebrating the 250th anniversary of its charter this year? Celebratory events are being planned for the weekend of August 16-18.

Shelburne History Artifacts:  The Pierson Library will be planning a special display throughout August about the history of Shelburne.
