The 2010 Conference included a National Register of Historic Places Workshop conducted by James Gabbert, of the National Register of Historic Places, as well as a day-long field trip. A Marble Valley field trip headed west to Proctor (including the Vermont Marble Museum); to West Rutland (including its cemetery and the Vermont Carving Studio); to Hubbardton, a Revolutionary War battlefield; and to Castleton Village (including Higley House, the museum of the Castleton Historical Society).
