Meetings

Our meetings are social, educational and a lot of fun. Visitors are always welcome.

We meet at 7:00 pm on Monday evenings from September to May, the second Monday of the month (Tuesday in the case of Monday holidays), in the Centennial Room of Burlington Central Library, 2331 New Street.

Each meeting includes a brief talk by a BHS member on “Bits of Burlington History” and an illustrated presentation by a visiting speaker.
