These 14 Photos of Vermont In The 1970s Are Mesmerizing

Contrary to popular belief, Vermont is not a state filled with tie-dye wearing dead heads, and if there ever was a period in time we would expect to see hippies (or disco fanatics) it would be the 1970s. After all, the 70s bridge the gap between the hippie movement and the new age of disco. Only In Vermont has uncovered some photos of Vermont in the 1970s depicting real Vermonters who didn’t fall into either category, rather, they exemplify the hard working people that continue to populate Vermont today. Let’s take a trip back a few decades into the 70s and have a look.

What stereotypes are there about Vermont?

Where to even start… First of all, Vermont is simply an amazing state that has so much to offer, like gorgeous and peaceful nature areas. But one stereotype about Vermont is that there’s not much else except mountains, forests, lakes, and more nature. Vermont also has the stereotype of being the holiday destination place for city folk like New Yorkers, Bostonians, and Montrealers. Some other prevalent stereotypes are that we never have a spring season or that our winters last half a year. In reality, Vermont has much more to offer than just cold temperatures and nature spots.
