How Geology Influences History

Plymouth Geological MapMarjorie Gale, State Geologist and Director of the Vermont Geological Survey, will present a program on the geology of Plymouth. The program is scheduled for August 23, 2015, at 1 PM in the Plymouth Vermont town hall. Marjorie, who  has 18 years of experience working as a geologist in the Agency of Natural Resources, will focus on 3 bedrock maps of Vermont (produced in 1861, 1961, and 2011), on the big ideas that developed in geology, and on major changes that coincided with historical events (the Civil War, development of plate tectonics, space program, etc).  She will draw on some of our local history as well, to show links between local history and geology.

The program is sponsored by the Plymouth Vermont Historical Society.  It is free, and refreshments will be served. For more information, contact Robert Fishman at
