Abandoned Vermont: Longmeadow Inn

The Longmeadown Inn sits quietly on US Route 5 in Wells River; 1832 on the sign refers to its construction date. Its hsitory is traveler based: inn, stagecoach stop, tavern, bed & breakfast. It’s for sale, so neglected is likely the more appropriate term than abandoned. But this building is included here because it has that historic & abandoned look about it, looking the same in March 2013 as it did in June 2012. Fortunately, it’s in good condition. Any interested buyers?

Around back, the additions don't look any better. Note the array of fire escapes, too.

The building has a beautiful backdrop. The grounds have terraces that slope down to the river. It's easy to see why an inn would be situated here, amongst the beautiful Vermont landscape.
