Brattleboro, Vermont

map

 

Near the site of the state's first permanent settlement (1724), Brattleboro is located in the southeast corner of the state in the Connecticut River valley. Vermont's largest town, it has undergone many metamorphoses in its life, from mills and industry (ex. Brattleboro was once the home of the Estey organ) to a counterculture "hippy haven" in the 60's and 70's. The cafes, restaurants and bookstores located here still reflect that counterculture influence, and structures like the restored 1930s art deco Latchis Hotel offer powerful glimpses into the town's rich history.

Brattleboro has also had its share of Who's Who mentions. Architect Richard Morris Hunt (the Great Hall of New York City's Metropolitan Museum) and his brother, painter William Morris Hunt (Bathers, American Falls) were both born here. Rudyard Kipling wrote The Jungle Book and Captains Courageous while living in his Brattleboro home, Naulakha (which still stands). And Joe Gunther, the police detective from Archer Mayor's renowned detective series, calls Brattleboro home.

Other local attractions include the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center, Fort Drummer State Park, Santa's Land and a number of nearby educational institutions, including the Brattleboro Music Center.
