Vermont Pavilion

View of the Vermont pavilion.

Vermont's pavilion with its high peaked roof was designed of weathered wood and Vermont slate, a grand version of a lakeside or mountainside retreat. Inside the pavilion, sculptor Ferdinand L. Weber was at work with an air-hammer on a 35 ton chunk of Barre granite. During Expo he was busy creating a twelve-foot high statue of Samuel de Champlain, the 16th century explorer who discovered the lake and valley named after him. Visitors watched and asked questions while he worked.
