Marsh – Billings – Rockefeller National Historical Park

Wednesday, we went to the Marsh – Billings – Rockefeller National Historical Park in Woodstock, VT. The park is dedicated to the memory of three men who lived in the home (Marsh, Billings and Rockefeller) and who were dedicated to conservation and ultimately helped to preserve lands in our country’s national parks. Across the street is the Billings Farm and Museum, a working dairy farm that is open for tours and shows the history of farming.

The photos show two Tiffany stained glass windows. One is called “Passing the Torch” and is very fitting to the idea of conservation as it moves from one generation to the next. The other is in the music section of the parlor. The text reads, “Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music creep in our ears; soft stillness, and the night, become the touches of sweet harmony. Merchant of Venice Act V”
