The State of Vermont Pavilion
|Vermont's Pavilion, on Ile Sainte-Hélène
near the island's Metro station, illustrates the story of Man and his
World with an accent on famed scenery and proud tradition.
The soaring lines of the pavilion are in themselves symbolic of the Green Mountains of Vermont, which in winter are equally popular when snow-laden and with ski trails.
In the Theatre Section of the pavilion there is a continuous full color show. "The Beckoning Country" has been specially produced for Expo and creates the impression that visitors are in Vermont -- enjoying its climate, scenery, activities, and hospitality.
A Hall of History draws attention to the close historical association of Vermonters and Canadians. Through the six months of Expo 67 a Vermont sculptor may be seen at work on a 12-foot sculpture of explorer Samuel de Champlain who discovered the 136-mile lake which bears his name.
Exhibits of Vermont yesterday, today and tomorrow trace the Green Mountain State's history from the time of the earliest settlements.
A tourist information and reservations-booking network is staffed by bilingual Vermonters.
