That's right, there should be a statue of this icon near the State House. It is a very dynamic statue - my first thought was, "Looks like he's in a Dancing with the Stars competition". Worth a look.

Whether he is welcoming visitors or keeping an eye on the legislature to be sure they are not up to any hanky-panky, the rather large impressive VT granite statue of Ethan Allen graces the entrance to the VT state house. The statue is at the top of a long series of steps and overlooks the grassy pedestrian friendly park in... More

Not a whole lot to say...appears to be keeping an eye on the capitol building and the denizens within. Not nearly as loquacious as when capturing Fort Ticonderoga...must be from standing outside for a century or so.

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.

This is part of the state capitol; should not be a separate site. Someone from Tripadvisor should amend this listing. Thanks.

Take a tour through Vt's State House and step back in time. Original gaslights (now connected to electricity), furniture, stained glass....wonderful tiles on the floor that have fossils embedded from Isle La Motte's Chazy Fossil Reef (480 million years ago--plate tectonics pushed it over from Zimbabwe, Africa, to what was then a shallow tropical sea and today a landlocked Vt--and...
