The Doors of Stowe, Vt

Driving north from Boston to Burlington, Vermont, we turned off the Interstate 89 to check out Stowe on a grey, damp, early Spring day. 


It’s March, so shoulder season between skiing and summer. We were treated to a quiet but inviting short walk around the town. 


I loved the effect of the paint wearing off the bricks here. 


Whoa!  Look at the size of the doorway on this church!


I was particularly interested to note that the local elementary school is next door to the town library & arts centre, which in turn, is next to a museum – a school museum. I was touched by message this sends. Teaching an appreciation for history, art and reading. 

Nicely done, Stowe!

    I adore exploring new places – and looking for interesting doors is the perfect nudge to get out there to do so!

    I love this stuff. You found some beauties here
    It’s so much fun to walk around and explore the small towns of Vermont and New Hampshire..

    Beautiful doors! In the second one, even the glass reflections are symmetrical!

    Beautiful doors … each on inviting me in to see the delights they protect. That Church door is a stocker and the school is beautifully placed. I may settle in Vermont … what do you think?

    I haven’t been to Stowe, Vermont, in a long time so I appreciate your tour. Handsome doors, buildings, and philosophy. 🙂

      It was very quiet, although I expect there is a very different vibe in the height of summer.

    I had to do a double-take on the church doors. Wow!! … and a steeple with a clock. That church is a winner 🙂

      It does, doesn’t it? I’d like go back and see it in the summertime.
