September 3, 2018

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — The University of Vermont is offering historic tours of the campus through mid-October.

The free weekly tours take place beginning Saturday mornings.

UVM was founded in 1791 and has more than a dozen buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.

The tour visits a number of historic buildings on campus. The guide also talks about interesting people who have been part of the school’s history such as founder Ira Allen, a Revolutionary War hero and real estate speculator and alumnus John Dewey, an American philosopher whose grave is on campus.

The tour begins at the statue of Ira Allen, south of the fountain on the UVM green. No tour is planned on Sept. 29.
