Perched on a hill overlooking the Champlain
Valley, Rokeby Museum provides an intimate record of two centuries
of Vermont family life and agriculture. The house and farm nurtured
and survived the growing up and growing old of four
generations of Robinsonsa remarkable family of Quakers,
farmers, abolitionists, authors, and artists.
Today, listed as a National
Historic Landmark, the site tells two stories simultaneously
of the Robinsons in particular, and more broadly, of Vermont
and New England social history from the 1790s to 1961.
We hope this site will give you just a taste
of what you will find at Rokeby.
