UVM Morgan Horse Farm is a short 5 minute drive from the Inn and is one of the more unique visitor attractions in our area. The UVM Morgan Horse Farm is dedicated to the preservation and improvement of the Morgan Horse through breeding and selection. Designated as a site on the National Register of Historic Places, the farm is also home to significant Morgan history and a variety of educational programs. There is a small entrance fee.
About 30 minutes southwest of the Inn straddling the lower end of Lake Champlain are two Revolutionary War sites that are not to be missed by you lovers of history. On the Vermont side is Mount Independence and on the New York side, after a short Ferry ride is Fort Ticonderoga. Both will give insight into some of the great battles of this time in our history.
The Sheldon Museum, the oldest community-based Museum in the country, has welcomed visitors and researchers since 1882. We offer lively tours, exhibits, and programs to enrich the understanding of Vermont’s past.
A short drive north to Shelburne VT you will find two gems of Vermont history that are the premier attractions in this area. At the Shelburne Museum, explore and discover art, history, and the natural beauty of Vermont, an unconventional and utterly delightful destination in the Champlain Valley. Folk art, Impressionist paintings, circus collections, and even a steamboat—it’s all here on our beautifully landscaped campus of historic buildings and galleries, each one filled with fascinating collections.
At Shelburne Farms, our 1,400 acres of pastures, woodlands, gardens, and historic buildings are a unique campus for learning. Whether the topic is sustainable agriculture, sustainable forestry, or simply learning how we are connected to the world around us, Shelburne Farms makes learning real. The stature of its buildings and beauty of its landscape make the learning inspirational.
In addition to our historic barns, the campus includes our Market Garden, woodlands, dairy, and The Inn at Shelburne Farms.
