Ludlow, Vermont

map

Once the home of a General Electric aircraft parts plant, Ludlow is now best known for the Okemo Mountain Resort that has shaped its economy and landscape. The plant itself is now filled with restaurants and boutiques, and perks such as a number of local lakes, the Okemo State Forest and the Okemo Valley Golf Club have assured that Ludlow is humming in all seasons.

Attractions here include the Black River Academy Historical Museum, Crowley Cheese Factory and the Fletcher Farm Craft School, which offer close to a hundred classes in the summer in crafts such as stained glass, oil painting, wood carving and more.

Ludlow was granted in 1761 and orginally included half of the neighboring town of Mount Holly. It was possibly named after English peer Henry Arthur Herbert, one of whose titles was Viscount Ludlow.

While now a museum, the old Black River Academy (1835-1938) is best known as the school that graduated a young Calvin Coolidge in 1890.

The historian Abby Maria Hemenway hailed from Ludlow.
