The main buildings of Traveler's Rest were moved in 1992 to Northfield Falls, Vermont, and left to weather.
One small building has since collapsed from the snow; the second small building has partly collapsed and sits on its side.
The third, large building is still in place. The photos below were taken in May 2009, almost 18 years after the installation.
It is remarkable that these untended, wooden-framed structures have survived Vermont's elements for so long.
The original field itself is now being developed.

In 2011, Hurricane Irene swept into Vermont, destroying homes and roads -- and upending the last building from the original Traveler's Rest. In the left photo, we evacuate as floodwaters engulf the last building (and surround our home as well). In the right photo, the building is upended and sitting in a pool of mud. Sometime in 2012, the building will be righted, put on a trailer, and turned into a shed for young goats.
