The Jamaica Historical Foundation was founded three years ago and, with a grant from the Town, reprinted (4th edition) "Hometown Jamaica: A Pictoral History of a Vermont Village." We are also interested in preserving artifacts, documents and photographs, and are in the process of restoring a plaque stolen from the Jamaica State Park commemorating the "Salmon Hole Massacre" incident.Contact Person: Jeff Dickson, President, jdickson@sover.net
