We are excited to announce the Royalton Historical Quest, a new Valley Quest! This Quest will take you around the green in South Royalton while teaching you about the town’s history. Starting at the White River Valley High School, you will walk past the firehouse, memorial library, the old inn, and many more historical landmarks. In celebration of the 250th anniversary of the Royalton charter, this Quest truly highlights many of the roles and history that Royalton has to offer.
It was a gorgeous sunny day yesterday, so I went to South Royalton to try out this Quest. Parking at the high school, I walked first to the cemetery on my left, and then headed back up the street to take a left turn onto Safford street. Along Safford I could see the firehouse and the library. By turning right onto Alexander place, I was able to walk until I was on Railroad St, and the green was on my right.
This Quest is a gentle walk and only thirty minutes long. There are also many places to stop for a snack, or pack a lunch and relax on the green!
Thank you to Ms. Ephchook and her 2019 sophomore class at the White River Valley High School for creating this Quest as well as a beautiful map and stamp! Special thanks to John Dumville of the historical society for his help in this Quest’s creation.
