A Cultural Community Founded in 1800, Middlebury College is one of the oldest liberal arts colleges in the United States. With 2,450 undergraduates from 50 states and more than 70 countries, Middlebury brings distinction and cultural diversity to our Vermont community. Many of Middlebury College’s resources are open to the public. The Mahaney Center for the Arts hosts a year-round array of top-level concerts and performances, and the Middlebury College Museum of Art is home to several remarkable collections as well as traveling exhibitions. With more than 30 varsity teams, known as the Panthers, sports events often take place in the beautifully maintained fields and facilities around campus. The public is welcome to make seasonal use of the 18-hole Ralph Myhre Golf Course, the Middlebury Snow Bowl (alpine skiing), and the Carroll and Jane Rikert Nordic Center (cross-country skiing).



Our Towns Vergennes Opera House

The Opera House has been beautifully restored and is acoustically superb. A year-round schedule of jazz‚ opera‚ folk‚ classical and theater performances are presented in fine style, drawing audiences from throughout the county. City Park‚ in the center of the downtown area‚ hosts Monday evening summer band concerts and interesting festivals such as French Heritage Day in July and Vergennes Day in late August.

Vergennes, founded in 1788, was Vermont’s first city, and bills itself as America’s smallest city. The city’s name was suggested by Ethan Allen to honor the Comte de Vergennes who served as the French Minister of Foreign Affairs. Vergennes negotiated the Treaty of Paris in 1783, which ended our Revolutionary War. You’ll find the elements of both a vital city and neighborly town here. The City Hall and Vergennes Opera House are still the center of Vergennes’ business and cultural life, with cultural and civic activities scheduled year-round.

To the West: Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks. To the East: the Green Mountains. Gorgeous, fertile, high, and wide, the Champlain Valley is unspoiled, yet up to date and sophisticated.

The Stone Block

Bixby Memorial Library

Within the three-block downtown area, traditional businesses mix with the new. Gorgeous historic and architecturally signifigant buildings have been recently renovated, and the entire downtown is treated to a spectacular view of the Adirondack Mountains to the west. A vibrant culture of sophisticated restaurants, cafés, shops and nightlife has established roots within the Revolutionary war-era buildings. Sidewalk-lined streets (not so common in rural Vermont!) lead pedestrians down a gentle but persistent slope eventually reaching the boat basin to Lake Champlain at the end of town.

Vergennes Falls at Otter Creek

On the western end of town is the historic Bixby Memorial Library, which is on the list of National and State Historic places. Noted for its spectacular stained glass dome, the Bixby houses one of the state's most important collection of Vermontiana. A little farther down is spectacular Vergennes Falls at Otter Creek, with historic pump houses still monitoring the hydro power. Achingly beautiful, the waterfall has been an anchor to the town's history since the 18th century. Vergennes is a terrific and popular stop for anyone travelling through the area, and an especially nice destination for bicyclists.

Outdoor Activities

Hop on your bike‚ lace up your hiking boots‚ dip your paddle in a lazy river, enjoy a fresh snowfall. All are made more enjoyable by the beautiful landscape which offers a kaleidoscope of colors each fall and the snowcapped mountains in winter. Here are just some of the activities available in Addison County. Road Biking Addison County boasts nine bicycle loops developed by the Lake Champlain Bikeways. Loops range in difficulty from an easy loop with a continuous panorama of fields and mountains along Lake Champlain or a more challenging loop offering two mountain climbs over the Middlebury and Brandon gaps. Contact the Chamber office at 802-388-7951 for a free copy of the Bikeways map or visit Mountain Biking In the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area, this 9-mile circuit offers vistas across southern Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks on a trail ascending to an amazing ridgeline, descending through ferny glades and winding through the boulder-strewn Leicester Hollow, back to the Silver Lake Campground. With the assistance of the U.S. Forest Service, this is a one-of-a-kind system and the first on federal land in VT. Fishing Don’t forget your fishing license (they can be purchased at many country stores). The area abounds with lake trout, rainbows, smallmouth and largemouth bass, perch, pike, and pickerel. Great fishing— summer or winter!

Hiking Vermont’s famous Long Trail skirts the eastern part of Addison County linking peaks such as Mount Abraham, Bread Loaf Mountain and Romance Mountain. The region’s state parks offer well-marked trails, as does the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area located in the heart of the Green Mountain National Forest. Favorite day trips are Snake Mountain in Addison, Rattlesnake Cliffs overlooking Lake Dunmore, the summit climb to Deerleap that keeps watch over the village of Bristol, and the forest and fields of Mount Independence State Historic Site.

Basin Harbor Club, one of Vermont’s most elegant summer resorts, extends along the shores of Lake Champlain; Neshobe Country Club, located in Brandon, offers 18 challenging holes; and the Ralph Myhre Golf Course at Middlebury College is just one of the college’s fabulous athletic facilities.

From the shores of Lake Champlain to the high peaks of the Green Mountains, the history and culture of Addison County can be found everywhere. You see it in the 200-year old villages clustered around crossroads and at the falls of powerful rivers, in busy downtowns, in historic farms, in many high-quality museums, art galleries, performance venues, and craft and artists’ studios. Samuel de Champlain explored this region in 1609, traveling at least as far south as the narrow straights at Chimney Point on Lake Champlain. Soon afterwards, there was a struggle for control of the area (and its natural resources ) between different European factions. The English, French, and native peoples all traveled regularly on the lake and its tributaries. In a bold move, the French built a wooden fort in 1731 at Chimney Point to control the lake, and by the 1740s there was significant French settlement on both shores. In 1759 the English wrested control opening the door for more settlers.



Addison County Chamber of Commerce

In 1776 and 1777 the Addison County region was a hotbed of Revolutionary War activity, playing a key role in America’s road to freedom. American and British vessels, from canoes and bateaux to large warships, were common sights on Lake Champlain, and spies and scouts scoured the countryside. American colonial forces built one of the war’s largest fortifications, Mount Independence in Orwell, as a defense against the British enemy to the north. After the Revolution, settlers established towns, cleared land for farms, and started water-powered industries. During the mid-1800s Addison County became known for its Merino sheep and for its role in the abolitionist movement, speaking out against slavery. Rokeby, now a museum, was a noted stop on the underground railway. By the turn of the 20th century, logging and wood products manufacturing were significant industries in the hill and mountain towns, and many areas became popular for summertime fun.



Every town has buildings listed in the State and National Registers of Historic Places— including homes of early settlers, churches, town halls, country stores, commercial blocks, covered bridges, and large agricultural complexes. Middlebury, Bristol and Vergennes have historic downtowns and village greens that are ideal for exploring or listening to music in the summer. Middlebury and Vergennes have wonderfully restored theaters or opera houses, and Middlebury College has fine performance spaces. Many towns are home to talented artists and crafts people with studios and galleries open to the public.
