When you live in Vermont, it can be easy to take the classic village green for granted. From Craftsbury to Chester, there are dozens of village greens across the state. Still, they all have a unique feel and wonderful sense of place.
One of my favorites is the Weston Village Green along Route 100. The entire village of Weston is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the Weston Village Green is the heart of this idyllic Vermont community.
Near the village green are the Weston Playhouse Theatre Company, the Vermont Country Store and historic homes. Located in the center of the village green is a small gazebo that I always love to see.
Maybe it’s easy to take village greens for granted. You’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all, right? I don’t think so. For many of us, it’s hard to grow tired of timeless, scenic and peaceful places.
