We're easy to find in downtown Middlebury, Vermont. If you're going south on Main Street, you'll cross the bridge over the Otter Creek. When you see a large cannon on your right (west) just look across Cannon Park and there we are! Take a left (east) after the Mobil station, and you'll find a lot of free municipal parking. From here, you can make a nice walking tour of downtown Middlebury.

    A wonderful, secluded, and yet conpletely in-touch museum focusing on the beauty, splendor, and vibrancy of Addison County history. Focused on both public exhibits and active archiving projects, it's a gem within the green tapestry of Vermont's gorgeous landscape. The curators are engaging and informed, filled with both a passion for their work.
