Southern Vermont Welcome Center

Custom Hand Hewn Frame

The Southern Vermont Welcome Center is just past the Massachusetts border on Interstate 91 North. Vermont Timber Works built a custom timber frame with an old Vermont barn style for the welcome center. The project features the main welcome center barn, an information center shaped like a Vermont corn crib, and a wonderful open air picnic pavilion for visitors to enjoy.

We worked with architect Jeff Goldstone and Tim Smith of Tim Smith & AssociatesDufresne-Henry Engineers, Neagley & Chase Construction and Munson Earthmoving on this wonderful project.

All of our frames are handcrafted to meet exact project requirements and we enjoy working with our clients to make sure the details – from design to finish – are just right.

If you like this timber frame barn, or have timber work questions, we invite you to get in contact or ask an expert!

The State of Vermont has done a great job setting up the Welcome Center like a mini-museum with information about towns throughout Vermont. There are computer stations linked to the Chambers of Commerce and displays of centuries-old rural traditions.

After a timber frame has been fabricated in our Vermont shop, our crew often travels to the job site to assemble and raise the frame. The same people who cut the frame do the assembly.
