In 1816, Guilford was the most populated town in Vermont. Algiers was a district, named jokingly for card players who gathered at the crossroads wherethere was a hotel, a tavern, a livery stable and store.Today, a time when towns lose their personalities along with their local stores, it would be easy for Algiers to be erased from view and memory.
When the former owner got an offer from a national chain, that was the obvious future for the Guilford General Store and its site, the Broad Brook House. But Vermonters value their villages and their communities. The neighbors agreed that saving the store was the route to saving Algiers. The Friends of Algiers Village have now purchased the store - but a lot more is to be done. Grant proposals are being written,volunteers have been recruited, and neighbors are sitting down to kitchen tables, deciding how they can help.
