Everett Mansion/ Southern Vermont College
In 1911, Edward Everett, known as the glass and bottle magnate of the American Industrial Revolution, commissioned architect George Totten and 30 stonemasons from Italy to build the limestone Main House patterned after the 14th Century English/Norman feudal mansions. Working seven days a week, ten hour days, the exterior was completed in six months. The cobblestone courtyard features the “porte cochere” where carriages dropped visitors opposite a stone cascade which has recently been renovated(1998). The Estate, which also includes other building, provides a fairy tale atmosphere overlooking breathtaking views. The property is now home to a four year liberal arts college which hosts soirees, tours, reenactments, theatre and other community events.
