And Just A Plain Thanks

My Family...Joy, Greg & Kerry...for putting up with me.
Paul & Vickie for turning me into a computer geek.
All the collectors out there who help me add a new

piece to my collection,

you are all my very good friends.

Special Thanks to The Bennington Museum 
West Main Street,Bennington,Vermont,05201

(The Museum houses the best exhibit of Norton Stoneware,

including some of the most unique Little Brown Jugs)

The Bennington Museum means so much to me...

When I first started this site over 20 years ago, all I cared about were the actual Little Brown Jugs, not the history.

But through the museum I learned of the Battle of Bennington and the future celebrations.

The Bennington Monument and the significance of Battle Day.

And of course the Norton Family.

I am forever indebted to you !!
