The mansion on the side of Mount Tom
was often a place of celebration and entertainment when the Billings and Rockefeller families lived there from 1869-1997. The National Park Service is continuing that tradition by welcoming the people of Vermont and their friends, neighbors and families to a free Community Day, Saturday August 23, 2014 10am-2pm.

Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park in Woodstock, Vermont, invites you to enjoy family games,entertainment, music, Animal Olympics and art activities for kids, and ranger-guided tours of rarely–seen places on the grounds. Fitness sessions for all will be led by local instructor Anne Richter Arnold, and Woodstock art center ArtisTree will bring art activities. Food will be available for purchase, cooked by the Woodstock Volunteer Fire Department, or you're welcome to bring a picnic. Rangers will offer brief visits to the historic mansion and lead tours of the 1960s underground Fallout Shelter and the hidden forest Bungalow.
