Jericho, Vermont: Route 15

0

After leaving Burlington, my plan was to make a swing to the north and east on Route 15, then pick up Route 108, the scenic drive through Smuggler’s Notch.  Along the way, I found a few good reasons to pause from the drive in the town of Jericho.

I stopped to admire Jericho’s “Old Red Mill” — the Chittenden Mill — from the outside, but I really should have gone in.  The mill’s lower level houses a museum, where some of the mill’s original equipment is on display.  There’s also an exhibit devoted to Wilson “Snowflake” Bentley, a local farmer who was the first person to ever photograph a snowflake.  He ended up taking more than 5,000 images, and some of them are on display here.

Just up the road from the Old Mill, you’ll find Jericho’s United Methodist Church…

… next to several other big, old houses…

… and the Jericho Town Hall.

A bit further up the road, I stopped for a look at this interesting old barn.
