Elegant reminder of the Revolutionary war and Green Mountain Boys

An interesting introduction to the history of Vermont, this impressive statue stands guard near the door to the capitol building.

Love this ageless statue of Vermont's founding leader. This is part of the visit to the state house and is on the main front porch with the giant columns.

It's a nice statue of a State hero, who fought the British as well as New Yorkers, but that is all. It is easy to find, and there will be no crowds or waiting.

The statue is ok. However, the Statehouse where he stands is well worth a visit. This Statehouse is very open to the public. There are guided tours. Well worth the visit if you like historical buildings. Both chambers are open, and if the legislature is not in session, you can sit in the seats and get a real feel for... More
