Weston Village Green: The Heart of a Small Town

-The Weston Village Green

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 Weston 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.

    I am always enchanted by Village greens! This one is so charming. I think if I had that much green around me, I could never take it for granted

    @Sharon – Me too! Thanks for stopping by.

    @Jenny – I know what you mean. If I lived near this particular village green, I would spend as much time there as possible!

    I always stop and walk around the green, or sit in the gazebo for a few minutes whenever I’m there. Beautiful place.

    I seriously want nothing more in life right now than to take off my shoes and walk through the green… Glad to see that this area is still a part of the culture in the northeast… Please don’t take it for granted, or it will become a site for a new government project.

    All you need is string lights and a band… That’s a party!
