Thank you for the lovely article on Newfane, Vermont. I grew up in Brookline (the town next to Newfane), went to school in Townshend and all are lovely little towns. Newfane has the beautiful town common with the courthouse, church and inns. Townshend has a lovely common with large trees, a gazebo, elementary school and the former Rochambeau Lodge that was my husbands family home growing up. Brookline has the wonderful “Round School House” and a very very old church. I loved growing up there, I now live in Florida. (I am not fond of cold winters) Again thank you for the wonderful story you told!
Very nice article; however, one point of contention: the shutters are a deep green, often called New England green. There was a law on the books in Newfane that houses needed to be white with dark green shutters. Although the law has since changed, most homeowners have kept the tradition.
