Vermont was essential territory to both the English and the French during the 18th Century; many of it’s men went off to fight in the Civil War. The graves of men, women and children who lived through these harrowing experiences are scattered throughout small villages all over Southern Vermont. These cemeteries tell stories of lost dreams and changed lives beautiful poems and words of wisdom. The setting for each of the cemeteries Penny has prepared in this scavenger hunt, are quintessential Southern Vermont.
Penny has mapped out 15 old grave sites within a 30 mile radius of Chester, for you to visit. Adding to the adventure, Penny has created a scavenger hunt which offers a prize from Ye Olde Shoppe at Inn Victoria if you are able to successfully complete the hunt. You will find gravestones as early as 1793 in excellent condition. The grave sites are in beautiful, tranquil settings and are meticulously cared for.
