Vermont isn’t only known for its maple syrup! As the nation’s fourteenth state, Vermont reflects a fascinating history and progressive spirit that contributed to a strong sense of self-sufficiency among native-born residents.
With fact-filled photo captions and chapter introductions by historian Ginger Gellman, Historic Photos of Vermont rediscovers the state’s fascinating past through nearly 200 rare photographs culled from the University of Vermont, and many other archives, all showcased with exceptional clarity and beauty.

Historic Photos of Vermont is part of Turner Publishing’s Historic Photos series. These books, highlighting the history of the great cities and legendary figures across America, have been acclaimed as a staple in the collection of anyone who loves history.
