    ST. JOHNSBURY HOUSE

    by LoriPori Written Sep 24, 2012

    Favorite thing: Located at 1207 Main Street, ST. JOHNSBURY HOUSE was originally built in the 1850's. The building was rehabilitated and restored in 2001 to provide affordable housing for Seniors.
    The day we were there, a Festival was going on and St. Johnsbury House residents were holding a sale of crafts, baked goods and used items.

    ST. JOHNSBURY ATHENAEUM

    Favorite thing: One of only ten Athenaeums in the United States, the ST. JOHNSBURY ATHENAEUM is significant because of its construction, the American landscape paintings and books from its original role as a public Library. It was presented to the town in 1871 by Horace Fairbanks, nephew of Thaddeus, the platform scale inventor. It has been recently restored to its original splendor, including the upstairs Lecture Hall with its original woodwork and stenciled ceiling. The building includes an art gallery, home to an amazing collection of Hudson River School originals.

    Info Center

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This place is right in the center of town on the main drag. It's your garden variety info center. Stop in; there's some good stuff in the form on pamphlets, maps, general helpfullness from the people, etc. Make sure you make a point to get there during normal business hours; it's a small town and they don't stay open late!

    Fondest memory: It was still kind of gray when I was walking around in early March, but it was a cute town with more to do than I expected.

    The Athenaeum

    Favorite thing: St. Johnsbury is a very cultural little town and it was such a surprise, had I known, I would have planned a longer stay. They have many area events during the summer which include summer fairs, weekly band concerts, and locally-produced plays and has even been the site of independently produced motion pictures.

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory was the discovery of this little town and all it had to offer.
