Chazy's Historic Markers

Updated: 1 day ago

The blue and yellow signs that mark historic sites are so familiar that sometimes they simply blend into the landscape. As local history enthusiasts, we were excited to be given the opportunity to collaborate with Chazy Town Historian Ellen Riley and students from Chazy Central Rural School to help give our town's markers the attention they deserve! In the coming weeks, we'll be sharing information here that fleshes out the stories behind the markers using photos, maps, newspaper articles, and other documents. The collage images you'll see at the top of each post were made by art students in Grace Potthast's class during the spring of 2023.

The first four historic markers in Chazy were erected in 1959 under the auspices of the Friends of Library as part of the statewide commemoration of the 350th anniversary of the discovery of Lake Champlain. Since then, they have been joined by almost two dozen more, marking sites of significance to the Revolutionary War and War of 1812, early settlers, industry and agriculture, transportation by rail and ferry, and more. As we explore these markers, we hope you will share your own stories! Do you have family lore, photos, or documents related to these sites? We would love to hear from you!
