Where is Ira, VT???
"Ira is supposed to be named after the youngest brother of Vermont's famous Allen clan, Ira. After the town organized on the 31st day of March, 1779, Ira Allen placed his name on the petition document requesting a grant for the town. At the same time, he served as Vermont's surveyor general. Besides these two points, Ira Allen had nothing else to do with the town's history, but must have gained some influence to have the new town named after him."
Two Actors portrayed Ira and Ethan Allen and their experience during the Revolutionary War.
This was vey interesting.
