Overview

Nestled on the shores of Lake Champlain, with views of the Adirondacks and Green Mountains, Burlington, Vermont has attracted visitors and residents alike since the late eighteenth century. Lumber, textiles, shipping, the railroad, and higher education contributed to its growth, creating a city with a unique personality. Burlington's story is aboutcommunity and people; sometimes poignant, ofteneccentric, but always intriguing. More than 200 photographs from selected sources take Burlington from 1860 to 1960, and give the reader a glimpse of the people, places, and events that created the city we know today. They include the changing face of the waterfront, the metamorphosis of streets and parks, downtown growth, a variety of prominent residents, and visitors from presidents to national heroes.
