“The Roots of My Raising,” with George Woodard: Exhibit Presentation & Reception
February 3 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
The Waterbury Historical Society invites you to our inaugural exhibit in the Steele Community Room, “The Roots of My Raising,” with actor, filmmaker, and third-generation Waterbury farmer George Woodard, Jr. There will be light refreshments and an opportunity to hear from George about his lifetime in Waterbury and beyond.
The Woodard Farm on Loomis Hill Road was established in 1912 when George’s grandfather, Walter, purchased the 200-some acre farm. In 2012, the farm was designated a Century Farm by the Vermont Farm Bureau and Vermont State Grange. Century Farms, which are increasingly rare, are those that have been owned and worked by the same family for 100 years.
George Jr. is also an award-winning filmmaker whose latest film, The Farm Boy, was screened at locations all over Vermont in 2023.
No registration is required for this event.
