Barre Vermont

Barre in the Great Flood of 1927

In November 1927 over a 39-hour period a total of 9 inches of rain fell in the area surrounding Barre Vermont. Barre sits in an area described by the author as a huge catch basin, and the rivers and brooks feeding them could only filter so much rain at one time before overflowing their banks. The tragic outcome wasn’t a loss of property, it was that 63 individuals would lose their life due to the flooding. This book provides an accurate eye-witness account of the flooding and is filled with pictures of the aftermath. It is free to read or download.
