Many communes thrived in the Brattleboro area through the 1960s and 1970s. Packers Corners, the community that gathered around a hilltop neighborhood in Guilford, Vermont, is still a gathering place for writers, artists and activists.
The Brattleboro area owes its reputation as a haven for alternative thinking and living in large part to the communes that thrived here through the 1960s and 70s such as Tree Frog Farm, Montague Farm, and Total Loss Farm, the community that gathered around a hilltop neighborhood in Guilford, Vermont, known then and still today as Packer Corners.
