  • Brattleboro Museum and Art CenterBrattleboro Museum and Art Center Brattleboro, Vermont
    The Brattleboro Museum and Art Center in Brattleboro, Vermont opened in 1972, is a non-collecting museum located in an old historic train station in downtown. The museum was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, and displays new exhibits each year by local, regional and international artists. A few of the well known artists with works on display include; Janet Fish, Wolf Kahn, Jennifer Bartlett, Chuck Close, Andy Warhol and Chris Van Allsburg. The museum is used as a community center when needed, and when first opened it was managed by volunteers. Then, in 1981, the first professional director came on board by the name of W. Ron Foulds, who took over the running of the museum and center. Numerous exhibitions are shown each year that interest the citizens of the city, plus local school groups and community organizations. The history of the building that houses the museum and center is very interesting, and began in the mid 1800s, when the first train came to Brattleboro from Boston on the recently finished Vermont and Massachusetts Railroad. The railroad brought more than just a better and faster way of traveling, it brought goods and services that had taken months, more people came to enjoy the solitude and serenity of the forests and nature. It brought modernization and all the trimmings. The station was used until 1966, when the Central Vermont and the Boston & Maine stopped service to the city and Union Station closed. Eventually the building was slated for destruction, but since it was such a symbolic display of a bygone era, it was saved and the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center was opened in 1972.  Current exhibits include; Drawing Itself: A Survey of Contemporary Practice, Back through Black: Marcy Hermansader, Eric Aho: Ice Box, Bill Long: Through the View and Joseph Fichter: Clarion Call.

  • NaulakhaNaulakha Brattleboro, Vermont
    Just north of Brattleboro, Vermont in a small town called Dummerston, Naulakha or the house that Rudyard Kipling named, was where this exciting author wrote Captains Courageous, the Jungle Books, A Day's Work, the Seven Seas and worked on Kim and the Just So Stories. Rudyard named the home after the Naulakha Pavilion inside Lahore Fort, a walled city in Pakistan. Its Mughal architecture fascinated him while he stayed in the city during his visit in 1882-1887. This home was made a National Historic Landmark in 1993 and has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. Kipling, the first English author that won the Nobel Prize for Literature, came to Vermont in 1892, and built this wonderful house that he believed was invaluable and called it Naulakha. A picture of the house is just to the right, and if you are familiar with the countryside in Vermont, you can just imagine looking out over marvelous fields, entwined in forests and streams that go as far as you can see. On the property sits the first tennis court ever built in the state, with wonderful sledding or skiing in the meadow that surrounds the house. Heading out the back door brings you to a pristine wooded area with all the serenity and solitude you could hope for. There are summer music festivals held nearby, swimming in cool clear waters that have yet tasted pollution, biking up and down roads with little traffic, hiking through the many woodlands and forests that make up the state, golfing in the summers and numerous well known ski areas close by. The house sits on 55 acres and has been completely remodeled for those interested in renting the house. All the furniture and furnishings belonged to Kipling, as well as the majestic and beautiful views of the Connecticut River Valley. Naulakha is a Hindi word that means "jewel beyond price" and the house was designed by Kipling himself; with the idea that it would resemble a ship with his study in the front. Kipling introduced skiing to the state by using a pair of skis he'd been given by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of Sherlock Holmes. His pool table still sits in the attic, waiting for anyone to come by and use, as well as his personal bathtub.
