Tyler Resch con Glastenbury: The History of a Vermont Ghost Town

The curious history of a tiny town that all but disappeared . . . Includes photos!
 
Founded by a famously scheming New Hampshire governor, Glastenbury struggled for over a century to break triple digits in population. A small charcoal-making industry briefly flourished after the Civil War, yet by 1920 Glastenbury counted fewer than twenty inhabitants.
 
The end came officially in 1937, when the state, following a spirited debate, formally disincorporated the town. Yet Glastenbury’s legacy lives on in Tyler Resch’s lively and amusing history. Follow Resch as he chronicles the community’s compelling, if always precarious, existence.
 
From mysterious murders and curious development schemes to the township’s eventual annexation by the US Forest Service, Glastenbury tells the ultimately redemptive tale of a community that lost its political status, only to gain a national forest.
