1800 and Froze to Death: A VHC Series hosted by Howard Coffin
Date: Friday, November 1, 2019
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The year 1816 has long been known as the year without a summer. Vermonters still call it "1800 and Froze to Death,"ť a year of frosts every month, dark skies, and mysterious lights that caused a widespread belief that a higher power was displeased. In this talk, historian Howard Coffin includes scores of anecdotes on the dark year of failed crops, scarce food, and religious revival.
This talk is free, open to the public, and accessible to those with disabilities.
Location: Highland Center for the Arts, 2875 Hardwick Street, Greensboro, VT
