The Starksboro, Vermont exhibit highlighted three notable Starksboro people over the past 200 years.  The stories of Elijah Hedding, Bertha Hanson, and David Mason made up the display.

Elijah Hedding was the Seventh Bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church in America. He lived in Starksboro, Vermont and served the Methodist Episcopal Church of Starksboro before becoming Bishop.

Bertha Hanson was well known not only in her native Starksboro, Vermont but Addison County, and the State of Vermont as an avid historian and genealogist.  Her historical  writings for the Starksboro, Vermont Town Reports were compiled into book format by the Starksboro Village Meeting House in 1998 and aptly titled Bertha's Book - A View of Starksboro's History.

David Mason, better known as Stoney Mason, has made stone wall building into an art and has been commissioned to build stone walls throughout Vermont.  He has given seminars on his wall building techniques around the State.
