The history of New England's longest and most powerful river reaches back into time. It is the story of clashing continental plates and glaciers, the story of Abenaki living lightly on the land. Along its shores the story of colonial settlement in this region is documented.  The earliest stories are found in its villages, surrounded by lush fields and forests, whose architectural distinction still dominates the valley today. 

Visit the birthplace of Vermont, drive across a two span covered bridge 465 feet long built in 1866, visit a museum housing the largest collection of historically significant machine tools in the nation. See the old Boston-Maine steam locomotive #494 built in 1892, and wander through two restored historic railroad stations that now serve as waypoint centers. You can visit farms, craft and antiques shops, watch glass blowing, visit a micro brewery and so much more.  Then cross the Connecticut River and travel the New Hampshire side of the byway where all new experiences await you.

Rockingham was at one time called the “Village of Seven Taverns”, and what is now Leslie's Tavern was located on the busy new “Post Road” (1795), just a mile or so north of the Bellows Falls Village. Young Enos Lovell built the main structure, perhaps at first for his growing family, later as a tavern, and it was a successful endeavor for him. The tavern furnished food, shelter and conviviality to the public arriving by stagecoach.  http://www.lesliestavern.com/
