    The foundation, footings and bottom floor walls of the new building were completed in the fall of 2012.

    The lodge was designed by Robert Carl Williams of Pittsfield, The general contractor was Engelberth Construction of Colchester.

    The venue participates in Green Mountain Power’s Cow Power Program, using electricity generated from cow manure.
