Glover, Vermont


Glover Vermont is a town in Orleans County, in the "Northeast Kingdom" region of Vermont, near Route 16 and I-91. The town is named for John Glover, a Brigadier General in the American Revolutionary War and prime proprietor of the town.

The Bread and Puppet Theater, a politically radical puppet theatre, active since the 1960s, is based in Glover Vermont. Larger than life size puppets often on stilts, wear huge masks with expressive faces, singing, dancing and playing music. The Bread and Puppet Museum includes some of the biggest puppets in the world.

There once was a body of water in Glover known as Long Pond. In 1810, during work on creating a channel to Barton River, the banks gave way causing a flood throughout the Barton River Valley that continued to Lake Memphramagog in about 4-6 hours. The area where Long Pond once was, is now called Runaway Pond.
