Dave Cawley discusses Old East End history with Preservation Burlington

Our very own Dave Cawley recently sat down with Preservation Burlington‘s Ron Wanamaker to share the unique history of the Old East End and hype our 3rd Annual Winterlude festival!

Learn about the boundaries of our neighborhood, the families who founded and defended the area, plus the homes, businesses, and taverns that supported this new settlement.

Here are some highlights: “Yorkers” are bad, the Green Mountain Boys are a force, and Ethan and Ira Allen kept us from being snatched up by New York.

Preservation Burlington is a non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to preserving and protecting the historic architecture and live-ability of Burlington, Vermont through education and advocacy.
