Historically interesting place
Old Constitution House
The Old Constitution House is located in the small town of Windsor,
which is located in the county of the same name near New Hampshire. To date, it
has a very special meaning for the state - it is the birthplace of the Vermont
Constitution. However, the town of Windsor is not only important for the state
of Vermont, but great American history was also written in the Old Constitution
House. The 1777 Constitution was the first to ban slave labor in the United
States and to grant men the right to vote without owning land. The old 18th
century Gregorian house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in
1971 and is now open to visitors.

Special buildings and structures
Pulp Mill Bridge
The nearly 60 m long Pulp Mill Bridge is a covered wooden bridge built
in 1820 between the small neighborhoods of Middlebury and Weybridge in Addison
County. It is the only two-lane bridge in Vermont and serves as employee access
to the Shellburne Museum, which has included the nearby small Pulp Mill
waterfall in Otter Creek in its gallery. Because of the heavy rainfall in
Vermont, the bridge has to be renewed and overhauled regularly and is therefore
often closed to rush hour traffic.
