Bio the city's raison d'être is the greater permanent Brattleboro Museum and Art Center, located downtown, across from the Marlboro university Graduate School within the former Union Station and offering views of the river paralleling tracks outside and keeping the ticket that is original in, behind that will be the accordingly designated "Ticket Gallery." "Founded in 1972," according to unique description, "the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center presents rotating exhibits of modern art and many social activities, including lectures, workshops, performances, movie tests, (and family that is." "Close to Home: New Pastels by Ray Ruseckas," one exhibit that is recent offered, as the name indicates, an creative perspective associated with the area. "The hillsides, woodlands, and glades of the Connecticut River Valley," said Mara Williams, museum curator, "are Ray Ruseckas' stomping grounds and motivation. Ruseckas renders the changing dynamics of land in seasons, deftly capturing fleeting effects that are atmospheric plus the rhythms and proportions of place... Through refined tonal shifts or contrast between light and dark, (he) creates an impact of emotional apprehension, a frission between what exactly is seen and what exactly is implied or sensed." "Threaded Dances," by Debra Bermingham, another exhibit that is recent equally featured surreal results. "(Her) paintings are elusive and mystical being a landscape enveloped in mist," Williams published. "Images emerge gradually, sensually from delicately layered areas. Veils of blue-gray to pearl-white shroud empty or scarcely populated area. Glimpsing objects-a fragment of the vessel under complete sail, a teapot, a moon-through the mist, we have been unmoored from time and room."

Tracing its origins to the two-floor personal house of Enos Lowell, who converted it to an inn to provide people searching for good food and lodging in 1801, it expanded in dimensions and prosperity with that of the village and counted several owners-from Hyman Burgess towards the Phelps Brothers, whom added a third floor after buying the home for $1,700 in 1865. That appearance remains towards the current. Though it fulfilled its initially intended reason for serving commercial people, several notable men and women have remained here through the years, including Rudyard Kipling, Daniel Webster, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Ralph Waldo Emerson. After anxiety age stagnation, disrepair, and competition from growing modernized motels, it had been obtained by the Windham Foundation in 1965 and elevated to more expected standards with plumbing system, heating, hot-and-cold operating water, and private restrooms. Yet its 45 guest spaces retain their nation character. Its dining venues consist of the Old Tavern Restaurant as well as the Phelps Barn Pub.
