Words Trail

The Audio Trail

From Abenaki petroglyphs and the first known African American poet Lucy Terry Prince, to Nobel Laureates like Saul Bellow, Jody Williams and Rudyard Kipling, these surprising, artistic, community-created audio stories link places to people to create a unique Vermont experience exploring America’s most storied small town!

Also in conjunction with the Brattleboro Words Trail, the book Print Town: Brattleboro’s Legacy of Words was published. With concise history and brilliant photographs, it is a compendium of Brattleboro’s printing, publishing, and literary history from the 1700’s to the present. Available at area bookstores and libraries.











This project was launched with a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and we are proud to be a partner; to celebrate the rich history of words in the town of Brattleboro.
