Historic Day in Vermont

Following the renaming of Norman Rockwell’s New York City homesite (now “Norman Rockwell Place”) this past June, the artist’s West Arlington, Vermont home was officially declared a historic site for the state during this year’s Rockwell Models Reunion held on August 6, 2016. In addition to original models, former Vermont Governor Jim Douglas was present to make the declaration. Thanks to our friends/former Vermont neighbors Don Trachte, Jr. and Jim Edgerton (whose family lived next door to Rockwell) for updating us and sharing photos from the event, which celebrated its fifth in the Green Mountain State. Rockwell’s legacy continues!
