The following was published on Vermont Agency of Agriculture’s facebook page:
“Vermont’s Goddess of Agriculture is back. Ceres returned to the top of the State House Friday (November 30, 2018). Many thanks to all those who made it happen including artist Chris Miller of Calais. Watch and listen as Agency of Agriculture Employee Patti Casey brings us on Ceres journey back to her rightful place. We are confident Ceres will guide us and care for us today and every day.”
Engelberth Construction was hired by the State to restore the State House Dome, Drum and Statue. The 80 year old Ceres was carefully removed from her rooftop perch atop the golden dome in April prior to the regilding.
