In Brattleboro, two dreams have moved closer to reality. One is the
dream of restoring the Brooks House, an important downtown building, gutted by
fire in 2011. There’s also the dream of a
downtown college campus that would bring students and jobs to Brattleboro’s Main Street.
Students are getting their first look at the classrooms, lounges and labs
at the Community College of Vermont’s brand new, $8 million facility in Rutland. School officials say growing enrollment drove their need for a larger facility.
