On VT Route 100 in the midst of Green Mountain National Forest, Weston is a classic Vermont village with a famous store, professional playhouse, antiques and crafts shows.




More people have heard of the Vermont Country Store than have heard of its hometown of Weston, Vermont (population 600).

Weston has been here on the West River since the 1700s. The store has been in business only since 1946, but its mail-order catalog and branch stores have now made it nationally—even internationally—famous.

You needn't visit Weston to partronize the store, but you must come if you want to attend a performance at the Weston Playhouse, Vermont's oldest professional theater company (founded in 1937).

In summer, there's music in the air as students and faculty of the Kinhaven Music School perform in the Church on the Hill.

In October, during foliage season, the Weston Antiques Show and Weston Craft Show bring shoppers as well as leaf-peepers to Weston.

The history of Weston is visible at the Farrar-Mansur House and Old Mill Museums (1785-1795) on the Village Green: period furnishings, clothing, toys, tools and more.

The village has a few places for meals, including the Bryant House Restaurant, attached to the Vermont Country Store, the Cafe at the Falls, The Inn at Weston, Brandmeyers Mountainside Lodge, and Colonial House Inn & Motel.
