VT Edition: Scott Wheeler, Danny Gore & Robert Jenks on the Northeast Kingdom

Print More

Sixty years ago U.S. Senator George Aiken uttered the words "Northeast Kingdom" and since that time, the area made up of Caledonia, Essex, and Orleans counties has been known by its mythological name. The Northeast Kingdom has always conjured images of beauty, unspoiled forests and a calmer way of life. VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb talks with Derby Representative Scott Wheeler, who will announce a legislative resolution to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the region’s name and longtime Kingdom residents, including Norm Lewis (a.k.a. Rep. Danny Gore).
