    Pittsford had a few buildings of historical and/or architectural interest. My favorite was probably this church.

    We decided to kick off our first day in Vermont with a visit to the Maple Syrup Museum in Pittsford. As of 2009, admission is $2.50, quite the bargain! I have to say, the first couple of rooms are pretty cheesy. Life-size dioramas and paintings of maple sugaring through the ages. But then it got strangely cool. Loads of antique equipment, syrup themed professional artwork and, best of all, audio clips from some old guys who apparently made maple syrup in the stone age. These guys had the greatest voices, and really interesting stories about maple syrup production in the old days (even about fermenting it into a sort of beer!). After the exhibits, there’s a little slide show, and the tasting room, featuring a display of decliing maple content in commercial syrups over the years. You can taste different grades of syrup, maple spreads, maple jellies, maple candy… I almost went into defib from all the sweetness! There is of course, a gift shop; it’s about the same size as the museum proper. But you really do get the feeling the museum was put together by some people who really love sugaring. It’s cheesy, but sincere. Is that possible?
