Fall in Vermont
Some of the most beautiful things in the natural world are also the briefest one. The rainbow may last just a moment, the morning mists lingers for an hour or so after sunrise The pink light of sunrise, or the glow on a mountain lasts but a few minutes longer, and a winter snowfall may hang in the trees for a day after a storm. By these measures, the beauty of New England’s autumn season lasts quite a long time.
In the fall, millions of acres of deciduous trees turn brilliant shades of red, gold, and orange for a foliage show unrivaled anywhere.

One of the New Hampshire grants, the land which became Burlington was awarded by Governor Benning Wenthwort on June 7, 1763 to Samuel Willis and 63 others.
In the summer of 1775 land clearing began and two or three log huts were erected, but the revolution delayed permanent settlement until 1783, when Stephen Lawrence arrived with his family. The town was organized in 1785.
St. Louis No. 1 is the oldest and most famous cemetery in New Orleans. It was opened in 1789, replacing the city’s older St. Peter Cemetery (no longer in existence) as the main burial ground when the city was redesigned after a fire in 1788.
It is 8 blocks from the Mississippi River, on the north side of Basin Street, one block beyond the inland border of the French Quarter. It borders the Iberville housing project. It has been in continuous use since its foundation.
Recently timber bridges have received attention in the United States because they are environmentally friendly compared to other bridge types.
