Unhurried, Unspoiled, Unforgettable

A HISTORIC DOWNTOWN

Welcome to a classic New England village. Dubbed the “Art & Soul” of Vermont, Brandon invites you to experience the best of both worlds: a vibrant, walkable center of art galleries, studios, shops, lodging and restaurants and a gateway to the best of four-season outdoor recreation. Brandon is a study in early American architecture and Vermont history, with its entire downtown core of 243 buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  

When you visit, explore Brandon safely and with respect to state guidance as Vermont looks to slow the spread of COVID-19.
