-Trek through Vershire, Vermont on the Copperfield Town Quest to discover an abandoned ghost town, once home to more than 1,000 people.
-Explore in Strafford, Vermont on the Justin Morrill Homestead Quest as you wander among charming gardens and a 19th century “gingerbread” house.
-Go on Super Quest 2014 and journey to twelve local farm-related destinations. Pick up a copy of the farm quest at the Library. Explore, learn, eat, enjoy!
