Nestled at the crossroads of four highways in the hills of Northeastern Vermont, St. Johnsbury is a bustling town that boasts not only the St. Johnsbury Athenaeum and the Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium, but a wealth of other stores and attractions. Linda Fogg, Executive Director of St. Johnsbury Works!, a National Main Street Program dedicated to revitalizing and strengthening downtown St. Johnsbury, says she is seeing great things happen.

Recently, National Geographic named the town the #1 Small Town for Adventure, and that seems to be just the beginning. A new brochure about St. J and its businesses will soon be available at all regional welcome centers, reaching 1.6 million visitors annually. Sixty-five St. Johnsbury businesses participated in the brochure.

Also, St. Johnsbury Works! has launched a new website, called The site highlights the town and its attractions and businesses, not only for tourists, but also for local residents.
