We’ve got a lot to celebrate!
The VMM Board is thrilled to announce that the Museum is open!
Join us in marking this long-awaited renewal and the hiring of a new director, Molly Wickes. A graduate of the UVM Historic Preservation program, Molly returns to Vermont after directing the Carpenter Museum in Massachusetts and a stint at the Providence Preservation Society in Rhode Island among other posts.
Molly joins us at a critical moment in the Museum’s history and is ready to bring the VMM back to life. “I brought the community back into the Carpenter Museum and that’s what I’d like to do in Proctor,” said Ms. Wickes. “There’s a really rich history and a story to be told. There are still a good number of people in Proctor whose families worked for the Vermont Marble Company,” she said. “I want to reposition the Museum as a community museum and not solely a company museum.”
Check in here throughout the season for updates on new developments.
