This is the website of the Barre Historical Society, owner of the Socialist Labor Party Hall National Historic Landmark, known as the “The Old Labor Hall”. Here you can find information about the history of the Hall, about renting the Hall for your event, and about how you can help the Barre Historical Society preserve the Hall and the Union Cooperative Store bakery building.

If you can, please send flood-relief donations by check made out to the Barre Historical Society, PO Box 496, Barre 05641 or credit card via this site (bottom of page).
