If you’re been to Brattleboro before, or even if you’ve just started reading about this quaint little town on the Connecticut River, you probably know by now that is has a unique and funky personality all of its own. The independent and off-beat character of Brattleboro is a source of pride amongst its residents, and is perhaps the reason that keeps this town one of Vermont’s top tourist destinations. The unique personality of Brattleboro is on fully display this June, during the annual Strolling of the Heifers parade. We love the off-beat arts vibe of Brattleboro, and think you will too. Book your stay at our romantic Bed and Breakfast, just minutes from downtown Brattleboro.
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?
