  • William Czar Bradley (Westminster) audio


William Czar Bradley published a book at the age of 12 and was admitted to Yale (briefly) at age 13, and went on to become a prominent politician and lawyer. He represented Vermont in Congress from 1813-15 and 1823-27.

He left the public sector to practice and teach law out of his small office on the “King’s Highway” in Westminster. When he retired in 1858, it was as though he simply left the building for a brief stroll—everything remained untouched, and would be for the next 140 years.
