Marble staircase in the old post office in White River Junction, VT. Now home to the Center for Cartoon Studies.
A bit of history from the Hartford Historical Society:
Built in 1934 as a WPA Project, this building has seen life as a post office, Vermont District Court and as a privately owned office building. Located at the northeast corner of South Main and Gates Street, it is a Neo-Classical Revival-style brick building with a round, arched opening and the inscription “United States Post Office” on its front. The first post office in White River Junction opened in 1849 after the town became a major railhead and was located at or near the train depot. It moved in 1890 to the Gates Block and subsequently relocated to this building in 1934. It was replaced by a new distribution center, built outside the historic district in 1964.
More on looking up: seen any interesting door frames or entrances lately, such as this one from the historic (and former) Brattleboro, VT train station?
Yes, it’s still winter in Vermont. This snow-covered beauty is in East Middlebury, VT.
The Cavendish Universalist Church constructed in 1844 is a beautiful structure, impressively intact. It’s worth a look through the windows. Now if only we could move those utility wires.
It’s Town Meeting Day in Vermont. The Woodbury town hall has beautiful 3/3 windows.
The Barton Academy and Graded School is still in operation as an elementary school. This 1907 building is seen here on a crisp, sunny winter afternoon in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.

Have you noticed door hardware lately such as brass hinges? This sort of detail is not found on modern doors (unless custom made).
