Karl Decker was just two years old the first time he visited Townshend, a small community in Southern Vermont.
But over the years, Decker’s family made Townshend home. Decker is now a photographer and he spent nearly a decade in the homes and gardens of Townshend’s residents, learning their stories and taking their portraits. Those photos and stories are now published in a book called "The People of Townshend, Vermont."
He recently spoke with Vermont Edition about how Townshend has captured such a place in his heart.
