Welcome to Chelsea

“Gateway to the Capital”


At the Annual Town Meeting June 10, two deserving Chelsea residents received from the Selectboard the 2021 Spirit of America Foundation tribute. The two recipients were:

Mary Street – for her tireless work with the Chelsea Grange #214 and Chelsea Historical Society.

Sharon Burns – for the countless hours she has spent repairing, restoring and discovering monuments in Chelsea’s cemeteries.

When you see them please make sure to congratulate them.
