Come See the Artsy Side of Brattleboro

Posted on

Discover the Arts in BrattleboroYou may or may not have heard about Brattleboro’s long and rich history with the arts. In fact, Brattleboro has been called one of the top 10 small art towns in the entire country. That’s a pretty big reputation to uphold, but we think Brattleboro exceeds that moniker, hands-down!  The Inn on Putney Road, located on the beautiful Retreat Meadow, is just a two blocks from downtown Brattleboro. There, you’ll find our streets packed with coffee shops, independent bookstores, boutiques, and of course, plenty of art galleries and studios to peruse. Adding to the artsy vibe of Brattleboro Vermont are the many world class jazz concerts, film festivals, and theater companies hosted here each year.  All together, there’s enough here to keep the art-lover in you occupied for days on end.  If that sounds appealing, then book your room at our Vermont Bed and Breakfast today.

Mystery at the Inn on Putney Road??!!??

Posted on

Shortly after purchasing and arriving to take over operations of this Inn, we discovered the most curious of things . . . a plaque?  A grave stone?  A monument?  Most certainly we discovered a Mystery at the Inn on Putney Road!  A plaque is defined as “an ornamental tablet, typically of metal, porcelain, or wood, that is fixed to a wall or other surface in commemoration of a person or event.”  Most assuredly, what we discovered was a plaque.  But the only writing on the plaque are the words “Daniel  –  1918  –  Frederic” and relief profile portraits of two boys that look to be about 6 and 8 years old.  Who were Daniel and Frederic?  Did they die from the Influenza Pandemic of 1917-1918?  Did they die in WW1?  Is this plaque even a marker of their death?
