...from the 'Wandering in Place' project
Eden is the third location in a series of investigations into ideas of place as a defining force in our society.
Located in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, Eden appears a quiet community of Adventists, Mennonites and Quakers, where dairy farmers, mill workers and craftsmen gather at the general stores, dinners are served in old wooden churches and dances are held at the local Grange Hall. The rivers of Eden all spring from Eden and the views are as ravishing as the garden from which it takes its name. But it is also a hard and rugged place, where resourceful and independent inhabitants still labor stoically, as their ancestors before them.
