Description
It was here that the state's first permanent English settlement, Fort Dummer, was established in 1724.
Rudyard Kipling, in collaboration with New York architect Henry Rutgers Marshall, built a house for his American bride north of Brattleboro in Dummerston and named it Naulakha, which means “precious jewel.” Kipling wrote “Captains Courageous” and the two “Jungle Book” stories during his residence there. The Landmark Trust USA, a non-profit foundation dedicated to preserving historically significant homes, restored the house, which is available for rent by reservation and accommodates up to eight guests at a time; phone (802) 254-6868.
Also of interest is Brooks Memorial Library, which has changing art and photography exhibits, an extensive genealogy room and a children's room; phone (802) 254-5290. Running west to Bennington is SR 9, which offers scenic views in the vicinity of Hogback Mountain.
