The Poultney Historical Society has published a comprehensive Historical Walking and Driving Tours brochure that will lead you on walking tours of downtown Poultney and East Poultney, and a driving tour of the surrounding hollows, farms, and quarries that together make up the history of the town.
The brochure can be requested by email or by post at the address on the “Contact” page of this site. Or you can find them at the Poultney Visitors Center, the post office, or at many businesses in town.
The Society has also just completed three Historical Audio Walking and Driving Tours of Poultney hosted by Vermont’s master storyteller Willem Lange. These tours accompany the Historical Walking and Driving Tours brochure and are available at The Original Vermont Store on Main Street in downtown Poultney and at the East Poultney General Store on the historic East Poultney green.
