Welcome To The Vermont Welcome Center

By Sandy Connolly on September 24, 2013

The Vermont Welcome Center is located in Guilford, VT off of 91. It has bathrooms, Vermont history, vending machines, and lots of friendly faces. There are always interesting and unique things on display here, which change seasonally.

The main building for the Vermont Welcome Center features an impressive barn style timber frame with hand hewn pine timbers that is one of Vermont Timber Works’ favorite projects.

Welcome to Vermont!

Miss Poppy Catamount Prowl

Hello Miss Poppy!

This painted cat is part of the Catamount Street Art Festival.  I hear there are more of these Catamount’s in the area, but I’ve only seen Poppy, so far.

Check out the exterior view of the timber frame.

Is that a Moose?

Is that a Moose? It is!

Woodstock Moose

Woodstock Moose

This is Woodstock, he is very colorful, made of metal and was created by Payne & Elise Junker of Junker Studios in Chester, VT.  I believe there was a price tag on him, but I didn’t peek at it.

Let’s go inside as the most fun is looking up at the timber frame.  Well, for me anyway!

    Great post Sandy. I’ve seen a lot of moose tracks on my land in Chester but have yet to see the moose.
