Virtual presentation on the Winooski Dome – March 7

There will be a panel presentation on the fabled Winooski Dome project that I am moderating on the evening of March 7 as part of my work for the Heritage Winooski Mill Museum. 

During the energy crisis of the late 1970s, Winooski attracted international interest for its controversial proposal to build a dome over the city to protect residents from soaring heating costs. Some called the idea innovative, some farfetched. Over the years, the Winooski Dome has become a sensationalized part of local history. Join the Winooski Memorial Library and the Heritage Winooski Mill Museum for a virtual panel discussion to uncover the real story with three of the individuals involved in the dome proposal: Mark Tigan and Brendan Keleher, formerly of the Winooski Community Development Corporation, and Vermont architect John Anderson, who was commissioned to create a series of imaginative illustrations depicting this city of the future.
