Benefit Performance at Rudyard Kipling’s House, Thursday April 9th, 7 PM

Adults wondering how the elephant got his trunk or the camel got his hump should come to Rudyard Kipling’s Naulakha on Thursday, April 9th at 7:00 pm. On that night, The Landmark Trust USA will be presenting Jackson Gillman in a benefit performance of Kipling’s enchanting children’s tales, the Just So Stories.

Reservations are required if you plan to attend this truly entertaining performance.

Over the past 15 years, more than 6000 area grade schoolers and their teachers have watched as Mr. Gillman brought to life these timeless tales in the very setting where they were first told by Kipling to his daughter, Josephine. The Trust will again be offering this educational program free of charge to school groups during the week of April 6th. So enthusiastic has been the reception for these stories that the Trust has decided that adults, too, should have the opportunity.

The evening performance will be limited to 25 and the admission charge of $35.00 will include an intimate tour of Naulakha. Fine desserts and coffee will be served after the readings.

Funds raised from this event will be used to support our school program. For information and to reserve tickets please call 802-254-6868 during regular office hours.

!Maple Sugar Season is Here!

The Sugar Houses are steamy, the sap is running, and the air is sweet. We converted a 1950’s Sugar House into a vacation retreat for 2, (and your dog), located very near an active sugar house. Come up and enjoy this special early spring activity, get your own very fresh supply of maple syrup, while you also enjoy a change of seasons & returning migratory bids.

Kipling’s Carriage House has a “new” leather sofa

For years, a leather sofa circa 1890 was sitting under cover in the Hog Barn collecting dust, while drying and aging. Because it is a clear match to the upholstery styles in Naulakha, we spent hours and several pints of leather renew, bringing this piece of history back to life. It now sits in the Kipling Carriage House living room in front of the fireplace. It is deep soft and very comfortable. LTUSA office staff eyed it hungrily, but guest comfort is more important… !Enjoy!!
