US 5, Vt. 102, 105, 114, 12; White River Junction, 40 m. from Barre.

THE northeastern corner of Vermont is a land of primitive appeal, a region of villages and farms scattered over a broken terrain ridged with green hills, cut with sharp valleys, and splashed with lakes. There are lakeshore dance halls and excellent equipment for winter sports: skiing, skating, horse-racing on village streets or across the frozen lakes.

Near WEST BARNET is Harvey Pond, in a framework of rolling hills which gives it the appearance of a Scottish loch. Northwest of Barnet lies PEACHAM, secluded summer retreat of educators and intellectuals, where Thaddeus Stevens, most vehement of Abolitionists,
