Waterbury

Waterbury

Waterbury's broad main street - lined with well-preserved, stately old homes and a classic Meeting House and village green - hints at the many chapters of the village history, but as with many histories, sometimes you need a bit of help to figure it out. 

A great place to begin to get to know Waterbury's history is just off the green at the restored 1875 Waterbury Train Station.  Stop in at the Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Visitor Center & Café  for an historic photo exhibit, upcoming local events, and a fresh cup of java! Or, if the sun is shining, lace up your sneakers for the walking or biking tours .

You may just happen upon the weekly Farmers Market, summer concert, or in fall, runners training for the Leaf-Peepers 5K and half-marathon.  Historic Stowe Street offers a full range of shopping opportunities, and diverse, award-winning restaurants downtown.

North on Route 100 from the village, various industries have operated along the Little River and Thatcher Brook.  Today though, the biggest draws are home-grown and very tasty:  Ben & Jerry’s, Cold Hollow Cider Mill, and the Cabot Cheese Annex.

Wherever you turn, mountains will always be in view.  The nearby Worcester Range and Camel’s Hump offer some of the best hiking in the state, and Little River State Park some of the best boating, swimming and camping. 

History, arts, music, good food, outdoor recreation and beautiful vistas – whatever you look for in Vermont, you will probably find just what you’re looking for in Waterbury!
