For a time, East Poultney was home to Horace Greeley (founder of the New York Tribune). The district is a village-scale grouping of residences, religious buildings, and former schools. Outstanding examples of high-style Federal and Greek Revival buildings reflect the presence of Elisha Scott, a designer-builder, during the early years of the 19th century The green is dominated by one of his buildings, the East Poultney Baptist Church, constructed in 1805. The Eagle Hotel (now named the Eagle Tavem) was constructed in the late 18th century.
