Join us: Friday, November 19, 2021 at 12:00 PM at the Southwest Corner of St. Paul and Main Streets, Burlington, in front of TD Bank. The Green Mountain Club invites you to a ceremonial unveiling of a new roadside historic site marker commemorating the spot where the Green Mountain Club was founded. On March 22, 1910, James P. Taylor and twenty-three prominent Vermonters met in the Sample Room of the Van Ness House, formerly on this corner, to found a hiking club. The name chosen was the Green Mountain Club. The mission of the club was, and still is today, “to make the Vermont mountains play a larger role in the life of the people.” This resulted in the Long Trail, the first long-distance hiking trail in the nation.
All are welcome, rain or shine!
