Somerset Schoolhouse

Seeing Vermont takes you to a different part of the Green Mountain State, showcasing its scenery, buildings and people.

This week’s location: Somerset, Vermont

Where it’s located: This unincorporated township is in Windham County in southern Vermont. The nearest town is Stratton, and it's right next to Mount Snow Ski Resort.

About the area: The town was unincorporated in 1937 and is believed to have just two or three residents. There is no local government, and its affairs are handled by a state-appointed supervisor. It is one of five such unincorporated towns in Vermont.

The current area of the town has a graveyard and a schoolhouse, the last authentic building still standing. All the roads in the town lead to the Somerset reservoir, which is now used recreationally for kayaking and camping.
