Cultural Landscape

Jericho has a rich cultural history, from its Abenaki roots to its more recent agricultural past. Throughout the area, clues are embedded to tell the story. Artifacts, found most densely along the Winooski River corridor, allow us to envision the camps of the first human inhabitants amid the forested landscape. Later came the old stonewalls and cellar holes that divide the hillsides into geometric patterns, some long abandoned and others still in use to reflect trends in the local and state economy.
