The town of Pittsfield was established in 1781. It flourished during the mid 1800s. At which time there were small Yankee manufacturing shops, sawmills, and even a gold mine. The village still has the romantic charm of its 19th century heyday.
The inn, built in 1835 and originally called the Vose House, was used as a stage coach stop to accomodate many travelers.
Today it is a peaceful community of 385 people and a perfect place to escape the rigors of contemporary society. The history of the town is easy to enjoy and explore by stopping at the Pittsfield Historical Society and taking a tour of the historical sites around town.
There is a quintessential New England green with white clapboard houses, a bandstand, centuries old cemetery and a general store. All this is surrounded by the Green Mountains.
Pittsfield is one of Vermont's most scenic locations and it is centrally located to allow a traveler to explore the magic of Vermont with ease.
