Mount Independence schedules ‘Hike into History’

ORWELL — Stephen Zeoli will lead a special guided “Hike into History” on Sunday, Aug. 5, at the Mount Independence State Historic Site in Orwell. The walk runs from 2 to 4 p.m. and is included in regular site admission of $5 for adults and free for those under 15.
Learn about the stirring story of Mount Independence and its important role in the American Revolution and in the making of the nation. It was built as an American defense of New England against the British in 1776-77, and then occupied by the British and Germans from July to November 1777.
Zeoli is president of the Mount Independence Coalition, a former caretaker at the site, an editor of the new book, “Strong Ground: Mount Independence and the American Revolution,” and author of the short book, “Mount Independence: The Enduring Legacy of a Unique Place.”
Wear sturdy shoes, bring water, and dress for the weather.
Mount Independence is located on Mount Independence Road, six miles west of the intersections of VT Routes 22A and 73 near Orwell village.
