Having moved from its home in the old firehouse to the Sugar Shack some things have changed. There is a huge display of magazine covers produced by Rockwell as well as a gift shop area with prints, magnets, and other items.

If you're a Rockwell fan, this is a quick must See! And you should browse the Sugar Shack for some treats and Vermont gifts (donuts are excellent).
