Interesting Facts about St. Albans

The St. Albans House
Located on the corner of Lake and Catherine Streets, is the St. Albans House built as a hotel in the Greek Revival Style in 1840.  It was built originally to service stage coach passengers. When the Central Vermont Railway came to town, the St. Albans House was the closest hotel to the Central Vermont offices and train depot. The hotel was used for many years by railway workers, traveling salesmen and railway passengers. Some of the Confederate raiders involved in the St. Albans Raid stayed here.  The building still stands on this corner and is 174 years old!

This photograph is looking east up Lake Street and shows the St. Albans House in the 1870s. Notice the boys playing in the street and the man loading the wagon.  The picture is double because it is a photo card used in a stereograph. This device could make pictures look 3D.

This is what a stereograph looks like.

Voyager's Deserve Special Recognition in Fall Walking Contest

Its been great to see a number of learning communities win title to the Golden Shoe award for a week this Fall, including Voyagers.  However, what our school does not know is that the Voyagers have consistently walked high miles each week leading to a total that is more than 700 miles higher than any other team.  Also, due to a tabulation error, Voyagers should have been awarded the Golden Shoe award during one of the past weeks of the contest. Unfortunately, it is too late to walk that one back. The Voyagers deserve recognition for the community most committed to walking miles this Fall. Regular exercise to improve health, fitness and academic performance is what our school is aiming for.  The Voyagers are great role models for us all.
