"Framed by the Green Mountains to the east and the Taconic Mountains to the west, this small village, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was once home to a thriving marble company; its quarry is now a local swimming hole. Marble sidewalks lead through town, and elegant Colonial and Federal-style homes line the roads. There are scenic views galore, and everything you need in town: a general store, a fine inn, a bookstore, a lively bar, and a Euro-style bakery."
