Description
A resort area around Lake Bomoseen, Castleton is a town of historic significance and architectural charm. It was at Zadock Remington's tavern that the Green Mountain Boys, led by Ethan Allen and Seth Warner, planned their successful attack on Fort Ticonderoga during the Revolutionary War.
Marked by Ionic and Corinthian columns, porticoes, archways and Palladian motifs, many houses represent the style of architect Thomas Dake, who became a town resident around 1807. These well-preserved houses delight photographers and sightseers. Another pleasant diversion is the scenic drive along SR 30 south to Manchester Center.
