Central Vermont: Explore History in the Heart of the Green Mountains, was produced by the National Park Service (NPS), U.S. Department of the Interior, in cooperation with the Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce, Vermont Division for Historic Preservation, Vermont Historical Society, the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers (NCSHPO), and the National Alliance of Preservation Commissions (NACP). It was created under the direction of Carol D. Shull, Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places, National Park Service, Patrick Andrus, Heritage Tourism Director, and Beth L. Savage, Publications Director. Central Vermont: Explore History in the Heart of the Green Mountains is based on information in the files of the National Register of Historic Places and National Historic Landmark collections. These materials are kept at 800 N. Capitol Street, NW, in Washington, open from 8:00am to 12:00pm and from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, Monday through Friday, except federal holidays.

George Malek, Exec. Vice President, Nat Winthrop, Travel Coordinator, and Tracey Martin from the Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce conceptualized and compiled materials for the itinerary. Shannon Bell, National Council of Preservation Educators (NCPE) intern, coordinated project production for the National Register, wrote property descriptions, and assisted with the design. Contextual essays were written by Shannon Bell and Cari Goetcheus. The travel itinerary was designed by Nathan Poe (NCSHPO), who also provided editorial support.

Elsa Gilbertson and Curtis B. Johnson from the Vermont Division of Historic Preservation supplied invaluable photographs and assistance. Paul Carnahan (Vermont Historical Society), Alan H. Weiss (Northfield Historical Society), Juli Beth Hoover (Mad River Valley Planning District), and Christopher Bellamy (University of Vermont) furnished additional photographic material.
