History In Vermont
What are some historic places to visit in Vermont?
- Rockingham Meeting House (Rockingham): Constructed between 1787 to 1801, this historic place is an architectural treasure. It took folks until 1906 to realize this when the building was restored. The last time the building was used for regular church services was in 1839, and the last year it was utilized as a town meeting hall was 1869. Sadly some vandalism has taken place inside the building, but the outside remained intact. The pulpit was rebuilt from California redwood, the dowels in the pews were recreated, and it was plastered and painted. The people celebrated in 1907 with a pilgrimage to the restored building and enjoyed a picnic lunch.
- Brown Covered Bridge (Shrewsbury): Named after nearby resident George Brown, this covered bridge was made a National Historic Landmark in 2014. It is one of more than 100 covered bridges in Vermont. It was built in 1880 by Nichols Powers, a prominent bridgemaker, on the Upper Cold River. While it's been repaired over the years much of the original roof and structure remain intact.
- Fort Ticonderoga Ferry (Shoreham): The Ticonderoga Ferry is open from May through October, providing historic rides across Lake Champlain. The scenic seven-minute crossings go between Ticonderoga, New York, and Shoreham, Vermont. Folks visit this historic barge not only for transportation but because it is one of the oldest ferry river crossings in North America. Since 1759, people have been catching this beloved ferry.
