Area Attractions

There are many fine attractions in our area—and two are located within walking distance of the American Precision Museum.

  • The Cornish-Windsor Covered Bridge, originally built in 1866 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places is the longest historic wooden covered bridge in the United States and the longest two-span covered bridge in the world.

  • The Old Constitution House, located on Main Street in the center of Windsor, is the birthplace of Vermont. On July 8, 1777, the first Constitution of the “Free and Independent State of Vermont” was adopted in what was then Elijah West’s tavern. The noteworthy constitution was the first in America to prohibit slavery and the first to establish universal suffrage for men without the requirements of property ownership or specific income for voting rights. The Vermont Constitution was also the first to establish a system of public schools.
