New England's Great River

The Connecticut River was New England's first highway, the graceful path along which European settlers came north to build Vermont's early farms, villages and industries. Hosted by storyteller and writer Willem Lange, this fascinating video tours all 410 miles of the river and brings to life its epic story. Visit Fort No. 4, a Colonial fort town where Abenaki came to trade; tour Vermont's Old Constitution House; and see many other sites along the river, including historic covered bridges. A Vermont Public Television production.
