Overview


Around Lake Memphremagog is a pictorial timeline of the thirty-mile-long body of water that shares its Vermont history with Canada. The lake has for thousands of years played a critical role in the lives and history of the Wabanaki. Memlabagwok-the Abenaki name for the lake-was the waterway crossroads at the heart of the western Abenaki homelands. Since the 1600s, Lake Memphremagog has influenced the development of the northern Vermont and southern Canadian towns and villages along its shores. This combined cultural history and heritage is recalled here through sketches, vintage photographs, and postcards.
