Came here today for a walk around town. This waterfront is very beautiful! Lots to see, lots to do. There was a couple of cafe’s location as well as a restaurant. We loved the old buildings. Great photo opportunity!

Beautiful historic waterfront – it’s a historic village within the town, with no admission fee! Gift shops and restaurants are all part of it, and you can stroll freely through the streets and enjoy the waterfront park. Parking at various spots are no charge.

The Shelburne Museum consists of 38 buildings with items of interest to all ages from an extensive exhibit about circuses and a hundred year old working carousel to a1915 steam locomotive and an old train station. A steamboat was dragged 2 miles over land to become a fascinating exhibit. Also there are barns full of old wagons and sleighs. A blacksmith shop and a print shop are showing what was done in those businesses years ago There are many more exhibits and it would take two or more days to see everything.

We expected the standard array of interesting local artifacts, copies of stories from newspapers past, and assorted, donated items from local families. What we experienced was a trip back through time, with an extremely knowledgeable local gentleman(Murray), through a warehouse/store/family home that is largely intact from the late 1700’s. Amazingly, many of the original structures and fixtures and furnishings are still on site, looking as they would have appeared 250 years ago. The story of the founders of the original enterprise, woven with local history, and the trail of successors is riveting and exciting. Shelburne has created an adventure that is rewarding, and inspiring. Well done!!
