At Historic Park-McCullough, you experience the grandeur of the house often described as "one of Vermont's jewels". You also participate in the elegant lifestyle made possible through vast wealth accumulated during the California Gold Rush era and subsequently added to through business dealings in finance, railroads, steamship lines and real estate development.
The thirty-five room Park-McCullough House was completed in 1865 for Trenor and Laura Park.

The Preservation Trust of Vermont was founded with the goal of helping Vermonters save their historic places and that is exactly what has happened. In just three decades, the group has helped communities across the state save more than 1,000 buildings – village stores, post offices, schools, barns - all returned to productive use. Just this year alone, the Preservation Trust’s staff of five worked on 352 preservation projects in 155 communities.
