Rockingham Meeting House - A National Historical Landmark
Constructed 1787-1801
The Rockingham Meeting House is the oldest public building in Vermont that still exists in a condition close to its original state. The Meeting House was built between 1787 and 1801. To serve the needs of religious services and civic events in the town of Rockingham, whose first focus of settlement had been in the village immediately surrounding it. The town expected to expand rapidly and planned a meeting house large enough to meet its needs.
As time went on, settement in the town shifted to Bellows Falls and Saxtons River, while the village of Rockingham remained small and rural. The Congregational church which used the Meeting House for its services survived only until 1839, and annual Town Meetins continued to be held here until 1869.

Bellows Falls Petroglyph Site
What is a Petroglyph, Anyway?
Petroglyphs or ancient carvings in rock were left by native Americans centuries ago, here in the massisve rock
ledges of the Connectitcut River. What do they mean? Perhaps they signify a successful hunt, a battle or 
celebration. Or perhaps they are tribute to an awe-inspiring area of great natural beauty- a place we know as
Bellows Falls. More information on Wikipedia.

Bellows Falls Canal

Bellows Falls Canal

Canal St
Bellows Falls, VT 05101

The Connecticut was the first major river in the country to be improved for travel, with about 250 miles open to navigation by 1810. Constructed between 1791 and 1802, this canal was among the first in America and was a major influence on the growth of the village because it also provided power for many mills. Produce and lumber were brought downriver on flat-bottomed boats propelled with long poles, square sails, and the current. Here, avoiding the river gorge, boats passed through eight locks with a total elevation of 52 feet. The coming of railroads in the 1840s brought the era of slower canal boats to an end, but this canal, enlarged several times since, now serves modern need.
