Saxtons River is an incorporated village in the town of Rockingham in Windham County, in the Southern Vermont region of the state. For over a hundred years, Saxtons River has been the home of Vermont Academy, an independent secondary school.
Some notable people from Saxtons River include: John Butler Smith, an American manufacturer & politician; and Crescent Dragonwagon (nee Ellen Zolotow), author, writer, teacher, performer, & co-founder of the non-profit "Writer's Colony at Dairy Hollow" in Arkansas.
Times like these call for outdoor concerts, with small ensembles and ample room to stop by and enjoy some music from a safe distance. Our Close to Home and Far Afield series honors our statewide mission by visiting all 14 of Vermont’s counties this summer, bringing a variety of repertoire to town greens, patios, and other outdoor venues. For this edition of Close to Home and Far Afield, we’ll have a string trio in Saxtons River Park. Free and open to the public. Weather permitting. For venue accessibility information, please contact Louise Luring at firstname.lastname@example.org. In accordance with the state mask mandate, facial coverings are required in public areas when physical distancing is not possible.
