Chittenden County Barns


Shelburne, Vermont



"In surface, Shelburne presents a scene of quiet rural beauty, picturesque in the extreme at some points, though it possesses no rugged mountains to lend their grandeur to its loveliness. The land, generally level, is, however, gently rolling, enough to pleasantly break the surface into long, sweeping curves."

-Hamilton Child, ed., Gazetteer and Business Directory of Chittenden County for 1882-83 (Syracuse: Hamilton Child, 1882), 255.
