Suggested sites to visit in Vermont and New Hampshire

Jump to last reply

Since it is prime leaf peeping time I thought I would suggest some great places to visit in Vermont and nearby New Hampshire that are not always on a standard tourist itinerary. Everyone knows about Ben & Jerry's and the Great Corn Maze in Danville, but these are places that will give you some more insight into New England history along with some beautiful scenery.

1. Rokeby in Ferrisburgh, Vt. is a National Historic site on Route 7 south of Burlington. This is a place we have driven by for years w/o having time to stop. Yesterday we were headed to Burlington for the evening so we decided to take the afternoon to visit Rokeby. A fascinating Quaker family lived there for four generations before donating the house, lands, original furnishings and artifacts for a museum. We were the only people on the 2:00 tour. The guide was great and we learned a lot about Merino sheep farming, the abolitionist movement in Vt and New England history in general. There are walking trails behind the house.

2. Calvin Coolidge Homestead in Plymouth Notch, off Route 100. A beautiful, unspoiled spot with the added plus of some great cheddar cheese.

3. Billings Farm Museum near Woodstock.

6. Enfield Shaker Museum near Lebanon, N.H.

You can probably tell I was a history major....

These places are all open into at least mid-October.
