Grafton Village Cheese

Reviewed By bklyn56 - Westford, Massachusetts

The people in Vermont know their cheese, and those in Grafton excel at cheddar. The shop offers samples of most all of their cheeses, meats and condiments, so you can experiment and discover a new obsession. Their 6 year cheddar (which comes about usually by accident) is the sharpest cheddar I've ever tasted. It puts all other cheddar to shame. My mouth is watering right now as I think of it and write this review. Their smoked and garlic cheddar is also excellent. They also sell wine and bottled beverages.
NOTE: Cheddar cheese will keep for several days unrefrigerated, so buy some to take home. You'll be happy you did.

This shop has a small selection of well selected, but not particularly unique items. It feels more like a gallery than a shop due to the small selection. Nice merchandising!

We only planned for a quick stop, but ended up shopping and eating lunch for a two hour visit. This huge store has so many things to look at! Many items are from the time of my youth and prior generations so it seems like a museum, but everything is for sale. Definitely worth the short drive off the interstate to visit.

Stayed in Grafton in the summertime and this place has everything you might need for a relaxing summer day, a nice large pond with a diving/sunning floating platform and paddle boats, canoes,etc. It's also got lots of trails to hike, explore, or bike that are dog friendly. And they've got a frisbee golf course running alongside some of the trails that makes for a fun time for the young ones who might not be that into summertime nature hikes!

Jud Hartmann Gallery

Reviewed By drstretch2

We stopped in at the Jud Harmann Gallery while in Grafton, VT and it was a highlight of our time in Vermont. His work is amazing; the sculptures' express such emotion, movement and realism that you have to touch them to believe its bronze. Even more impressive and interesting is talking with the artist! He has a passion for the history of the Eastern Native American and clearly loves sharing it with visitors. We could have spent the afternoon just chatting with him. The building where he exhibits is also a treat to see. Don't miss a visit if you are in Grafton!

Eureka Schoolhouse and Baltimore Covered Bridge

Reviewed By Angela E - East Barre, Vermont

This little schoolhouse is must see on your travels to Springfield. 1st and foremost it is a throwback to a simpler time when there was 1 room schoolhouses. Desks are still there along with books, pencils, maps, etc. There is also lots of information about the actual schoolhouse on the inside and out. The covered bridge and the grounds surrounding are beautiful to look at too. There is also travel information available too located on the property.
