The house adjacent to the Visitor Center’s garden is the birthplace and childhood home of US Senator Patrick Leahy. During legislative sessions, his parents Alba and Howard rented rooms to lawmakers and also ran a printing press in the back of the house. It now houses the Vermont Council on the Arts, and through the side entrance, you can access the small Spotlight Gallery featuring Vermont artists. Admission is free.
