Then And Now Photos In Vermont That Show Just How Much It Has Changed

If you could transport yourself back in time—to the early to mid-19th century—and you walked around Burlington, Montpellier, or Rutland, you might not even realize which city you were in due to the immense change that has occurred over time in these cities. The progress of time moves and shapes our landscapes and cities, often not leaving many traces in its wake. To see the changes that have taken place in Vermont cities over the decades, these then and now photos provide such an opportunity, a view into the past, to reminisce, and to observe a time that has longed passed us by.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
