Vermont Historical Society will host “Counterculture’s Impact on Vermont and Vermont’s Influence on the Counterculture Generation,” a program set for Saturday, July 24th, at the Old Stone House Museum in Brownington, Orleans County, VT.
From 7 to 8 pm, author Yvonne Daley will discuss the period in the late 1960s and 1970s, when thousands of young migrants moved to Vermont, and its impact today.
Daley’s latest book Going Up The Country: When the Hippies, Dreamers, Freaks, and Radicals Moved to Vermont ( Univ. Press of New England, 2018) details how thousands of young migrants turned their backs on the establishment of the 1950s and moved to the backwoods, small towns and cities of rural Vermont.
