Quechee, like many other Northern New England villages, was once a thriving mill town. Quechee was settled in the 1760’s when homesteaders built mills along the Ottauquechee River. These mills provided everything from lumber to cider and spurred economic growth. To accommodate this growth, a bridge was built over the Ottauquechee River at the current site of the Quechee covered bridge. In 1875, the Woodstock Railroad Company built a bridge (an engineering feat of its day) to span the Quechee Gorge. For over 50 years, the train crossed the Quechee Gorge as it made its run from White River Junction and Woodstock, Vermont. The old railroad bridge was converted to highway use and is presently Rt. 4, Vermont’s major East-West roadway. Quechee is also home of the annual Quechee Chamber of Commerce sponsored, Quechee Balloon Festival. This Vermont attraction is held every Father’s Day weekend and features colorful hot air balloons and a festival.
