I saw one on Saturday morning, around 7:30 am (still darkish), December 10, 2016. It crossed the road in front of my car in a wooded area as I was nearing Fort Ann. The size and shape and color were unmistakable.
You want mystery spots? Has wikipedia got the article for you:
(Nothing from Vermont there, however.)
If you ride up the Cog Railway at Mt Washington you can experience a similar optical illusion. As you sit in your seat your brain tells you that "up" is along your spine, through you head, and then toward the ceiling. However if your conductor walks down the aisle between the seats you can see him/her tilted about 30-45dg away from you, even though they are obviously straight-up vertical.
The Canadians make money on their weird spot--it is called Magnetic Hill and is a tourist attraction --with plenty of tourists--around the Bay of Fundy
I live on this road. My neighbors has been here for about 50 years or so. He mentioned it is close to the E. Richford Slide Rd..
If he were really legit his middle name would be Aron.
Check out the locations mentioned in the first paragraph, if he hasn't got e mail.
Glad to hear he's alive & well. He used to live in Rutland; we wondered where he went to.
how would one go about contacting him?
The Basin Harbor Club is in Panton.
What's that saying about opinions??
I'm pretty sure it was blue for more than a month- probably all summer- pretty hideous I have to say.
I really miss the fountain in the top block of Church Street. It made it the coolest, temperature-wise, block on the street. The fact that kids enjoyed it too was a plus to my mind. Surely there is a way to keep fountains in this fine city. Kids love them and the sound of flowing water is a calmative to the worried and hassled people who pause by them.
Olmos was a good friend of Dan Bonfigli, a tennis pro who died of cancer a few years ago. I talked with Olmos at Danny's funeral. Dan's brothers Mark and Andy each started local businesses, Earth Cars and Dealer.com. So it is quite likely that Olmos strolled down Church Street and bought a cigar in Garcia's Tobacco Shop.

You did a lot of leg work to get this story down! I'm not from Montpelier, but I have seen it in the past and never gave it a thought. Now that I have read your very informative story, it was very interesting and a lot has a lot of history of out beautiful state of Vermont! Kudos to you!
Fun and informative article! Thanks for your work.
Yes thank you so much on the info of this place. I have lived in Montpelier and surrounding areas since I was about 7yrs old and am now about 34 and have always been very curious about this shack/house and wondered more info on it. This place is still here today with no one still living in it or doing anything with it. Now my wonders after reading this article is who will get it and what will they do or purhaps can I do something with it or own that little island. So much ideas go through my head to do with this place and have since I was 7. I would love to take it over.
Yes! Thank you for writing this story. Growing up in Montpelier my bus route on my way to and from school would bring me by this house and I would always make up stories about who lived there and what it would be like to occupy the island shack. Even as an adult I have always been curious about the history of the place and now I finally know.
As someone who has lived in Middlesex and Montpelier for most of my life, I have always wondered about that shack. We too speculated about what the story of it was and dreamed of fixing it up. Thanks so much for digging into this story!
