    Covered Bridge Museum



    You may pass through All Five Bennington County Covered Bridges in a standard size automobile - one lane only.

    Bridges were covered to keep the wood dry and thereby avoid rot. This became the trend in 1805 when a bridge designed by Timothy Palmer, an architect proved most durable.

    Most covered bridges are painted red because iron ochre was an inexpensive pigment.
    Here is an early recipe for bridge paint:
    • 2 qts skim milk buttermilk or whey;
    • 8 oz newly slaked lime
    • 6oz oil from ground flaxseed
    • 2oz turpentine
    • 1.5lbs pulverized ochre.

    The most common type of covered bridge is Town Lattice. All Bennington County Bridges are of this type.
    The below ride starts from the bmw ra rally site in Pownal and wonders back roads to and from the museum. Route 7 in NY is part of the route but is twisty and undulating. The route goes past the Big Moose Deli in Hoosick, NY my favorite place to stop, relax, have a sandwich and bring home a slice of homemade pie. The chocolate chunk cookies are huge. But, don't tell a soul.


    Destination: Bennington,Vermont
    Distance from Pownal: 16 Miles
    Duration: 21 Minutes

    Smile Looking For An Antique?




    If Manchester is the Bennington County capital of outlet stores then East Arlington is the capital of antique dealers. If you have never been to East Arlington, nestled in the hills between Historic Route 7A and U.S. Route 7, it is a Vermont town that hasn't changed very much over the years since Norman Rockwell was living and painting in the area. The relaxed country village atmosphere is perfect for the weary traveler to park and grab a bite at the local cafe and browse the Candlemill shops and sit by the gurgling brook that runs through town like a heartbeat of the mountains.

    It is in this setting that the two buildings of the East Arlington Antiques Center is located. The Main Street shop is in a building, which was built in the 1830s, was one of Vermont's first hardware stores, and later the Post Office. The shop is owned and operated by Phil Elwell, who was born in Shaftsbury and moved to Arlington in 1963. Phil has been operating this business above the village Post Office since 1988 and who has joined in a partnership with Rick and Ed Hawley of HBH Prestain up the road whose family owned the old movie theatre around the corner which is now the larger of the two locations for the Center.

    The Hawley family has owned the property where the Old Movie Theatre shop is since before the Revolutionary War. Between the two shops of the Center there are over 125 dealers renting space or selling on commission.

    In talking to Phil and John Maynard, the manager of the old Theatre shop, I found that antique dealing is less of a money making venture than a labor of love for antiques. Phil says there are two kinds of dealers, "Some do it for a living touring the country trying to find treasures, others as a part time business to supplement their income. A lot of people aren't in it for the money, they"re in it to try to add to their collection of follow their interests."

    I asked Phil if he felt there was a lot of competition in the antique market in the area, but he said, "the more shops in the area the better. Whether they be antique centers of specialty shops." Mainly because people will tend to go where there is a concentration and maximize their time shopping.

    If you have never had the antique shopping experience it is worthwhile to visit these two unique stores-in-one. The historic setting of the immediate area lends itself to the experience. In talking about the energy from having such a concentration of articles from the past John notes that, "I have people from all around the world in here and it"s exciting when they get part way around, they just feel so good with the high atmosphere, I"ve had Sinatra tapes playing and seen people dancing on the other end of the store."

    There is something for everyone at the Center, John notes, "One of the beautys of a place like this is the variety of the items, the fun part is that you can have some really old French furniture, this 1790 table for instance, and right next to it have something really funky." ALthough the two shops are different in regards to size and layout, they both feature a wide variety of items that are a reflection of the interests of the individual dealers who have arranged the displays. Some are interested in kitchen ware, with boxes of soap flakes from 1939, roller pins and egg crates, and others feature coins, jewelry or French enamel ware, and still others are an eclectic mix.

    Ride on a Harpoon



    In the Summer of 2000, we purchased a second brewery in Windsor, Vermont. This opportunity arose at a time when we were operating at capacity in Boston and looking for ways to meet the growing demand for Harpoon beer. The Windsor Brewery was built in 1998 for $5 million dollars and had a capacity to brew 30,000 Barrels a year. In the Winter of 2005, we added tanks to increase capacity to 55,000 barrels a year. In addition to brewing Harpoon at our original brewery in Boston, we currently brew Harpoon beer and the Leviathan Series beers at the Windsor facility.

    At Harpoon we have always worked hard to make great beer and welcome our customers to the brewery. We hope that you come visit our Windsor Brewery and see for yourself what makes our brewery - and our beer - special. Our Windsor Brewery features a Production Viewing Area where you can check out the Brewhouse "up close" and learn about Harpoon. We also feature a Brewery Store and restaurant known as the Harpoon Riverbend Taps and Beer Garden.

    We are open during Presidents Weekend, Labor Day Weekend, Memorial Day Weekend, Columbus Day Weekend, MLK Weekend. We offer free in-depth brewery tours of the Windsor Brewery at 3:00 pm on Friday and Saturday. Reservations are not neccassry, but the tour size is limited to first 30 people on a first come first serve basis. We request that children do not participate in the tour to allow room for those 21 years and older. The tour includes a walk through the brewery (depending on Brewery Production at the time of the tour) and complimentary samples of Harpoon beer. It lasts about 45 minutes. You must be 21 years or older with proper ID to sample.


    Today's route avoids the slat although there is very little slab in Vermont. It starts out and follows the Beast of The East for awhile and then passes some wind turbines in Searsburg and heads north on Route 100. A finer ride would be hard to find.

    Destination:Windsor, Vermont
    Distance from Pownal: 112 Miles

    Talking Cutting The Cheese



    For more information about Vermont's cheese industry, click here.



    The closest cheese producer to the rally site is Maplebrook Farm in Bennington just a few miles from the rally.



    Maplebrook Farm cheeses are made daily by skilled old-world cheese artisans. We make our own curd from the milk of cows that are rBGH free and that graze in the green mountains of Vermont. Our cheeses are made in small batches using all natural ingredients with no preservatives.

    Our cheese is a 100% Vermont product. When you buy this product, you are directly helping to support small dairy farms of Vermont. All our cheese is made from whole milk that has been pasteurized. A gluten free product and there is no corn in the veg rennet we use.

    Our Story
    In 2003, while visiting Manchester, Vermont, Johann Englert had a flash-back to her college years. A cluster of fresh mozzarella balls sitting on the counter of Al Ducci's Groceria reminded her of a groceria she and her mother had visited while traveling in Italy. The cheese artisans at Al Ducci's produced genuine, Old World mozzarella. Johann could not find that level of quality in Boston and bought 20 balls of mozzarella on the spot. She asked Mike Scheps, the owner's son and third generation cheesemaker, if he would be able to supply her with small quantities. Little did they know, a business was born.

    After sampling those 20 balls, 5 out of 6 gourmet shops in Boston wanted more of this genuine mozzarella. Johann and Mike were onto something. Business boomed as the operation moved from a kitchen to a small store to the purchase of a building. They developed an apprenticeship program to teach new employees the art of making perfect mozzarella. The program started with 3 local Vermonters and has grown to include 20 employees who are making small batches of cheese and wrapping them by hand every day of the week.

    From those first 20 mozzarella balls to the current 20,000 produced weekly, Maplebrook Farm has established itself as a premier artisan cheese producer distributing products up and down the East Coast.

    Thumbs up Home of the Little Giant



    How good is your knowledge of US History?

    Where was Stephen Douglas born?
    Why is he famous?
    Which future first lady did he briefly court?
    Who did he defeat for the Senate seat from Illinois?

    Read on ...

    Stephen Arnold Douglas (April 23, 1813 ÔÇô June 3, 1861) was an American politician from the western state of Illinois, and was the Northern Democratic Party nominee for President in 1860. He lost to the Republican Party's candidate, Abraham Lincoln, whom he had defeated two years earlier in a Senate contest following a famed series of debates. He was nicknamed the "Little Giant" because he was short of stature but was considered by many a "giant" in politics. Douglas was well-known as a resourceful party leader, and an adroit, ready, skillful tactician in debate and passage of legislation.
    The Brandon Museum at the Stephen A. Douglas Birthplace celebrates the history and lives of early Brandon residents in a first generation Vermont home and follows the national crisis of the mid 1800s and the anti-slavery movement and how it impacted one Vermont town. Visitor Center open year-round. Museum open mid May through mid October. At the intersection of Route 7 & 73 West.

    Question Time Travel Is Possible!

    Received my May 2010 issue of Smithsonian Magazine yesterday. The magazine always stretches the magazine and takes me to places I missed by ignoring the road less traveled. On the cover was one of Vermont's iconic red covered bridges with Venerable Vermont as a subtitle. The May issue said this about Vermont:

    I crossed over covered bridges spanning sun-dappled rivers, past cornfields and grazing cows, into a landscape punctuated by churches with tall steeples and 18th-century brick houses behind white picket fences. A farmer rode a tractor across freshly mowed acreage; old-timers stared at me from a sagging porch at the edge of a dilapidated village. My trip included stops at a flourishing summer theater; an artisanal cheese maker in a state famous for its cheddars and ch?¿vres; the 19th-century homestead of an American president; primeval hemlock stands and high passes strewn with massive, mossy boulders; and bogs where moose gather in the early evening. On either side of me rose Vermont’s Green Mountains, the misty peaks that set its citizens apart from “flatlanders,” as Vermonters call anyone—tourist or resident—who hails from across state lines.
    Time travel is possible. Just head for Route 100 and travel north from the RA Rally site in Pownal. The journey will be sublime.

    The Coolest American President



    Unique in American history, Calvin Coolidge was sworn in as President by his father, in Plymouth Notch, his boyhood home on August 3, 1923.

    It was in the family homestead in Plymouth Notch, Vermont, that a vacationing Vice President Calvin Coolidge received an urgent message from Washington.

    Moments later, by the light of a kerosene lamp, Coolidge took the oath of office from his father, the local notary public, following the untimely death of President Warren Harding. Years later, Coolidge wrote, "It seemed a simple and natural thing to do at the time, but I can now realize something of the dramatic force of the event."

    The homestead remains exactly as it was the night Coolidge took office. In fact, much of the village of Plymouth Notch is unchanged since the early 20th century. The Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site is considered one of the best preserved Presidential sites in the nation.

    In addition to the homestead, visitors may tour the Plymouth Cheese Factory - established by the President's father - and sample the granular curd cheese produced there. Other buildings open to the public include the Cilley General Store, the Post Office, the Wilder Restaurant (serving lunch), the church, several barns displaying farming tools of the era, the dance hall that served as the Summer White House, and the home where the future President was born.


    This is one sweet ride especially if you stop in the Vermont Country Store in Weston. Part of the ride is along fabled Route 100 and that along makes the ride worthwhile.

    Destination:Plymouth Notch, Vermont

    Ride to an Institution


    It's a journey back in time and just fun to browse.


    Haven't seen these in years. Maybe the TSA seized all of them to protect the airlines industry.


    Penny candy is now quarter candy


    Try just one of each and there won't be room for dinner.


    They really know how to cut the cheese in Vermont


    I remember one of these. The "automatic" washer was a big improvement.


    For those with a truly discriminating taste. The taste of Moxie is not soon forgotten.

    Thumbs up Man of Kent with Pictures

    The best restaurant between Troy, New York and Bennington, VT. The Man of Kent gets my personal excellent rating.


    Look for this sign at 4452 NY7 - Hoosick Falls, NY


    Slow down or it is easy to miss. It's a few hundred yards from the turn for Rabbit College Road.


    Travelers from all over the world have left souvenirs.


    The food is so good that many travelers have flipped their lid.


    Nice patio out back overlooking a nice stream that even Lyman has not discovered.

    Museum of Black WWII History



    The all-black 332nd Fighter Group (the Tuskegee Airmen) escorted more than 200 bombing missions over Germany without the loss of a single bomber to enemy fighters.

    • The 99th Squadron distinguished itself by being awarded two Presidential Unit Citations (June-July 1943 and May 1944) for outstanding tactical air support and aerial combat in the 12th Air Force in Italy, before joining the 332nd Fighter Group.
    • The 332nd Fighter Group was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation for its longest bomber escort mission to Berlin, Germany, March 24, 1945. It destroyed three German ME-262 Jet fighters and damaged five additional jet fighters without losing any of the bombers or any of its own fighter aircraft to enemy fighters.
    • The 332nd Fighter Group had also distinguished itself in June 1944 when two of its pilots flying P-47 Thunderbolts discovered a German destroyer in the harbor of Trieste, Italy.
    • The tenacious bomber escort cover provided by the 332nd "Red Tail" fighters often discouraged enemy fighter pilots from attacking bombers escorted by the 332nd Fighter Group.


    The purpose of this museum (the only one of its kind in the U.S.) is not to glorify war but to document it - in particular to honor the long-ignored role of African-Americans in the largest worldwide conflict in human history.
