The Haskell Free Library and Opera House
Derby Line, VT. is well known for the Haskell Free Library and Opera House, which was built on the international border of the USA and Canada, and opened in 1904. The donors were a couple who ironically enough, both came from different sides of the border. Carlos F. Haskell was a local American businessman who owned a number of sawmills, while Martha Stewart Haskell was Canadian. Their dream was that people on both sides of the border would have use of the facility, which is now a designated historic site. Visit the Haskell’s new website for more information.
