I had to get away from the house and needed a distraction from my sadness so I went picture taking for a little while.
The town of Strafford was created on August 12, 1761 by way of a royal charter which King George III of Great Britain issued to Governor Benning Wentworth of New Hampshire. The town was named after the Earl of Strafford. Its town house is one of the most famous in Vermont, sitting atop a hill in the historic town square.
The Strafford Village Historic District encompasses the historic village center of Strafford, Vermont, United States. Founded in 1768, the village center was developed in the 1790s, and saw most of its growth before 1840, resulting in a fine assortment of predominantly Greek Revival buildings. Notable exceptions include the 1799 meetinghouse, and the Justin Smith Morrill Homestead, a fine example of Gothic Revival architecture built by native son Justin Smith Morrill. The district, centered on the town green at the junction of Morrill Highway and Brook Road, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
I finally found some time to go out and play
The foliage was amazing last weekend in Northfield Vermont last weekend.
We had some snow yesterday. It made for a few nice pictures. Most of it is gone now.
Late winter in Waits River Vermont
In case you didn’t know, We had a respectable storm Thursday and Friday. The Weather Channel hyped it for days. I was able to sneak away from taking care of my mother for a few Saturday morning and took this picture.
