Wallingford is a quaint New England town nestled in the "Valley of Vermont" bordered by The Taconic Mountains to the west and the Green Mountains to the east. The town has so many architecturally significant buildings that three blocks of the downtown area are listed on The National Historic Register. The diversity ranges from Italianate Victorian to Greek Revival in style and the " Boy in the Boot" Fountain, located in the center of town , dates back to the turn of the century.
