Pitcher Inn, Warren Vermont

July 24, 2010
The front entrance of the Pitcher Inn hugs the side of the road on Main Street in the charming village of Warren, Vermont.  Here the cadences of everyday life slow down. Often, the only sounds are the wrens and sparrows, the flow of the river behind the general store across the country lane, and the rustling of wind.  David Sellars and a group of architects and designers have built an almost exact recreation of the old Warren Inn, which stood on the site until it was destroyed by fire in the mid-1990s. I was there for two days before I knew that the inn was not the original structure, built around 1850, at a time when guests would step out of their carriages and walk directly onto the front porch to avoid dust and rain. The Warren General Store, the bakery, and several other white clapboard buildings across the street have also been restored, giving the village the feel of an earlier time.  See full article on my website: www.emilieharting.com  www.pitcherinn.com
