Valentine’s Day tradition in Montpelier Vermont.

Valentines-Day-Montpelier-Vermont-2-14-2022-8
A Valentine’s Day tradition in Montpelier. Every year, under the cover of darkness, people go around and tape hearts on businesses in Montpelier and the surrounding areas. This tradition has been going on for years. I would imagine the Police see them, in the act, and just look the other way. It’s neat to look around and see these on every business in town.

This view never gets old.

The Jaffrey Meeting House in Jaffrey New Hampshire

Jaffrey-New-Hampshire-3-4-2014-8
In 1775, the frame of the Meetinghouse was raised, the first important civic event in Jaffrey’s history. Tradition has it that the raising occurred on the day of the Battle of Bunker Hill (June 17th) and that the sounds of the Charlestown cannonade could be heard by those toiling on the Common. The builder/contractor was Captain Samuel Adams, twenty-four years of age and then of Rindge, assisted by his brother-in-law, Jeremiah Spofford. In 1822, the bell tower and spire were added, paid for by donations on the condition that the Town would buy the bell, which it did the following year. It was cast by the Paul Revere Foundry. At the same time, the building was painted and new clapboards were installed.

The Fisher Covered Railroad Bridge in Wolcott, Vermont

Wolcott-Covered-Bridge-3-18-2017-113-NEP
The Fisher Covered Railroad Bridge is a covered bridge in Wolcott, Vermont. Built in 1908, it originally carried the St. Johnsbury and Lamoille County Railroad over the Lamoille River. Now closed, it was the last covered bridge in Vermont to carry railroad traffic, and is a rare surviving example in the state of a double Town lattice truss. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
