The Attic is where we keep a record of past historical society events, links to documents of historical interest, links to information collected by other historical societies, and other things that we don't quite want to forget about, don't know where to put, and certainly can't think of throwing away!

2014 Annual Meeting
The Wilmot Historical Society Book Club meets quarterly, this year March 8, June 9, September 14, and December 14. We convene at the Wilmot Community Association Red Barn from 10 AM to Noon. Our fourth meeting, usually the December meeting is at one of the participant’s homes.
The next title to be selected is voted on at each meeting. One member each quarter presents at least three titles to the group for their determination of the next book.
Selections of titles can vary to history genre and subject. We encourage diversity according to individual tastes and can range from the traditional histories to historical novels, memoirs, biographies and autobiographies. Genres covered in previously read books vary from: Samuel Pepys - The Unequalled Self (Diary of the famed 17th century Englishman) to Burr (an historical novel by Gore Vidal of third US Vice President). Books also read include histories ranging from a history of trees to a history on the influenza epidemic of 1919.
