This is actually the Royall Mill! It's over 300 years old,it has connections to the Archers too I believe.

It's still the most beautiful place on the planet. Prettymamamsuz I know Farrell Kelly too...Cloverlick=heaven
Sadly Bogart's went out of business.
I'm so glad to hear that the historical society stepped in! Shortly after I began my exploring days in 2006, I've been meaning to take the ferry--it is something I've really wanted to do. I'm not out there all that often (as a college student, the money to afford gas out there isn't always available), though when I'm in the region it's usually the wrong day, wrong season, or I don't have the time. I went to the ferry once, and to my dismay learned I missed the season by one week. I still hope to ride it someday.
Thanks for posting this, it was great to see!

Signs have been restored to show how the largest waiting room with a view of approaching trains was designated for whites, and the smaller one, with no view, for blacks, says Michael Quinn, president of the Montpelier Foundation. The exhibit is free and open to the public
