Upon his move to Vermont, master photographer Thomas Slatin wasted no time in scouting out the historic towns and cities of the Green Mountain State. Among them was none other than the state capital of Montpelier. The capital is about a 45 minute drive from Vermont’s largest city of Burlington and about a half hours drive from the ski resort town of Stowe.
While Montpelier isn’t nearly as large as Burlington or as well-known and picturesque as Stowe, Montpelier has plenty of historic charm. For a state capital, it has a small town feel with a relaxed downtown atmosphere.
Here are two photos Tom Slatin took in Montpelier, Vermont.
