Vermont's Great Flood

In 1927, Vermont faced the worst natural disaster ever to befall the rural state. A huge flood swept away houses, roads, farm animals and livelihoods. Over 600 farms and hundreds of businesses were destroyed. The loss of track and trains made it the worst disaster in railroad history. From tiny villages to the state capital in Montpelier, few communities went unscathed. Archival footage and interviews with survivors bring this historic event to life.
