Our Town

Where rural beauty and historic charm combine

Settled within rolling mountains is the town of Jefferson, where houses in the Hamlet were built between 100-200 years ago. Return to a time when a small-town community surrounds a village green lined with maple trees symbolic of the town’s active maple sugar industry. Enjoy the beautifully-restored Maple Museum and Judd Hall, a unique 13-sided barn, and local churches. Take a nature walk on a trail that begins behind our carefully preserved one-room schoolhouse.

A welcoming, small-town community
far from the noise and bustle of the world

Within Jefferson’s small-town atmosphere are friendly people who will make you feel at home. Breathe in the clear mountain air and enjoy the brilliant colors of nature not dulled by air pollution. Experience a spectacular night sky filled with stars that can be seen with the naked eye. Catch the dancing Aurora Borealis in winter or shooting star spectaculars in August. Amaze at the vivid fall colors of maple trees. Fish and swim in nearby streams. Watch beavers and otters play, deer graze, fox, raccoons, opossums, mink and fishers dart along the road, and catch sight of an abundance of birds, from hummingbirds to eagles, that populate our area.

Local agricultural products, good restaurants, fun activities

Shop for locally-produced cheeses, butter, maple syrup and candy, free-range eggs and meats, hand-made soaps, fresh locally-grown vegetables, and more at our weekly farmers market or visit the farms where they are produced. Eat in our two excellent restaurants, stay in charming BnBs, a newly restored Inn, or campsites. Walk our trails, ride horses, cross-country ski or snow mobile, hike our mountains, shoot skeet, and more. Enjoy free, weekly concerts in summer including a band concert from the iconic bandstand on the village green. And, come for our Heritage Day celebration fair in July and our pumpkin festival on Halloween.
