PAWLET, Vt. (AP) - The Pawlet Historical Society is getting a new home in a converted chapel at a town cemetery.

The grand opening of the new location was held Sunday at the renovated Chris Monroe Chapel in the Mettowee Valley Cemetery, adjacent to the town post office.

The historical society received a grant of almost $9,000 to convert the old chapel.

The building was originally a one-room schoolhouse. In the 1960s Charles Monroe, now the treasurer for the cemetery association, helped convert the school house in the chapel.

Mason says that over the last few years the chapel has been used for an Easter morning service.

The building will still belong to the cemetery association and it can still be used as a chapel.
