On Sunday Sept 29th over 60 people attended the Plymouth Vermont Historical Society's celebration of its new home. The event was given in honor of the late Betty Jarvi, a native of the Tyson area of Plymouth and long time member and supporter of the historical society. Early 1900's images of Tyson from plate glass negatives photographed by Walter Claflin and donated by Jarvi, were shown to a captive and engaged audience. Delicious refreshments followed. Guests were invited to tour the museum's newly expanded exhibits.
