The Maple Museum is set in the historic farm village of Pittsford, home to four 150 year old covered bridges, one of Vermonts' fish hatcheries, and the location of the first US patent. In John Steinbeck's novel "To a God Unknown", the main character Joseph Wayne, left his rocky hill farm in Pittsford for the fertile valleys of Central California.
Brandon, a unique art colony that is home to folk artist Warren Kimble, and Rutland, a cross roads city with a marble past, are within seven miles. Killington, a year round resort destination with hiking, golf and skiing, and Middlebury, a college town with several attractions including the Morgan Horse Farm are less than 30 minutes away.
Brandon, Middlebury, Killington and Rutland have an abundance of lodging and restaurants for every taste and budget. Of couse Pittsford has its own "chatter box" cafe, JR's Dinner right across from the Museum. A great place to sip coffee and catch up on the local news.
