Remember the Vergennes Depot? (Seen in October 2012 and December 2012.) A lot has happened since then! Rehabilitation is well under way with new siding, restored windows, original detail exposed, historically accurate colors and much more to come. Who wants to move in?
There is still work to be done on the exterior and interior, and tenants to find for the building. But what a transformation! If you’re on Route 7 or nearby Vergennes/Ferrisburgh, head over to the Park & Ride to see this beauty!

Very nice. I love the color scheme
How did they find out the original paint colors? I hate to see any historic building moved. Context is as imporatant as the building itself. But it is better than the alternative. Hopefully they will clearly state on an interpretive panel the exact original location and context.
The paint colors were determined through paint analysis. The building is only moved about a 1/3 of a mile down the tracks. It is on the opposite side of the tracks, but still oriented in the proper direction (station agent’s window still track side). In the previous location it was not accessible by the public, which is why it had to be moved. The interpretation has not been completed, but great idea! I’ll pass it on.

So here we are in 2018.
What is the current status of occupancy?
Will this be used as the Amtrak station when the Ethan Allen Express is extended to Burlington, VT?
