In 1965, the historic Adams Grist Mill was slated to be torn down.  Some residents of Bellows Falls were none too pleased and came together to save it. And so the Bellows Falls Historical Society was formed.

Today, the Society manages a large collection including ephemera , photographs and clothing at our new Center Museum at 31 Westminster St. The Adam’s Grist Mill Museum continues to house our Vermont Farm Machinery collection, tools, grinding stones, and much more. The Society continues to work to carry out its mission to establish and maintain a space for the exhibitions of historical artifacts and implements relating to the history and growth of the area in and around the Village of Bellows Falls and the Town of Rockingham.

Sustainable Valley Group

Mission: To help deliver a sustainable local economy through education, job expansion and sustainable business development.

Sustainable Valley Group began when a group of Springfield Vermont residents got together in July 2003 with the goal to help their community generate a financially and environmentally sustainable economy. They began focusing on education by sponsoring many public events on sustainable enterprises and activities. These events were well attended generating discussions on solar energy and other sustainable products. After years of making presentations the group was eager to take their ideas to the next level and see the creation of sustainable industries in their community. This is where Green Island Project came in. Green Island has the infrastructure in place to welcome new, innovative businesses along with being located at a transportation hub. SVG took on the Green Island Project in Bellows Falls Vermont during 2011 to bring into practice the ideas set out back in 2003. It is an exciting time at Sustainable Valley Group as we move forward leasing out space, creating jobs and opportunities in the sustainability sector for local residents.
