Take A Look Back At Vermont’s Year Without A Summer

The year 1816 is often referred to as “1800 and Froze To Death,” “The Starvation Year,” or most likely the “Year Without a Summer.” During this time, the summer months were filled with snow and frost, making farming practically impossible. Vermont certainly isn’t the only place that was affected, however we love looking back at the history and learn a few things about what life was like here during the Year Without A Summer in VT.
