You must visit this historic place. I definitely will go back again next year. Beautiful spot in VT especially during foliage season. more »
After my hike at Mount Tom spent some time walking the grounds. The gardens were absolutely beautiful. Dog friendly too. Not sure if the actual museum was opened. more »
This was a real highlight to our Vermont trip. Museum and movie are very worthwhile to visit. Do not miss tour of manor house, Complete with furnishings of all 3 historical owners. I was fascinated with biography of Mr. Marsh, in particular. As a graduate of Syracuse University College of Forestry, we studied his writings as the virtual father of the American environmental conservation movement. Photo is of Gorge, which is nearby.
Easy hiking up Mountain Road to the Mt Tom summit, with more challenging trails branching off. Beautiful views along the way and at the summit. Mountain Road is your best bet if you are with a dog, and Precipice trail might be a little be a challenge with your pooch in tow. Highly recommend.
The national historic park is not the same as the farm. They have two different booking systems so if you are going to one be sure you know how to buy tickets. The mansion and park were phenomenal grounds and the mansion itself was gorgeous and just the way it should have been left.
A great place to enjoy 3 conservationists fruits of labor. Hike Mount Tom and enjoy the view of Woodstock and the surrounding mountains.
Plenty of details on past and current farming including hands on experiences from making ice cream to milking cows. Great place to spend the day.
