We discovered the pretty little town of Chester by accident on our way to Okemo Mountain Resort. It’s tucked into the southeast corner of Vermont, where three branches of the Williams River meet, surrounded by rolling farmlands and Green Mountain peaks. The town has two historic districts, which should put it on the map for history and architecture buffs. The Stone Village Historic District has 10 beautiful Greek Revival buildings, made of stone from local quarries. A few blocks away is the Chester Village Historic District, with a mix of significant Victorian and Federal-style buildings, now housing a cluster of shops and inns.
