The district has 190 buildings along the old Bennington to Rutland stage road and its side streets. The St. James Episcopal Church, built in 1829-30, is the second oldest Gothic Revival church in Vermont. The village was an important industrial center, with marble works, mills, a railroad car factory, and from 1909 to 1929 an icebox factory. Noted novelist Dorothy Canfield Fisher lived nearby as did artists Norman Rockwell and Rockwell Kent, and modern composer Carl Ruggles lived in the old village school.
