From oldest to newest, they show the transportation changes that took place along Main Street in Burlington, Vermont, over the years. From a newly paved road in 1920, to the streetcars that lasted only a few decades, to the busy asphalt road of today, these images display a transformation that happened across the country.

Apple Picking in Vermont

Fall is a fabulous time of year. Leaves start to change color, the temperature drops, and apple picking season begins!

In the Landscape Change Program database we have quite a few images of apple orchards from around the state. One of my favorites is this image from Green Mountain Orchards in Putney, VT. Allison Darrow wrote to us in 2005, saying that the man in the photo is her grandfather William Hines Darrow, and that the orchard is still family run!

Be sure to browse the rest of the images in the archive and let us know if you recognize anyone! We’d love to see some new photos of this orchard in the database. If you’d like to upload a photo, just click here and follow the directions.

If you’re looking for an orchard closer to you, the Vermont Tree Fruit Growers Association has a list of apple orchards throughout the state.
