Vermont's state building was a reproduction of `The Old Constitution House,'  standing in Windsor, though at the time of the Fair, it was being used as a warehouse. The original building, an inn,  was the house where the Constitution of Vermont was drawn up and signed.  The Vermont entry covered an area of 50 by 100 feet and cost 5,000 dollars.  The building was near the Mining Gulch and south of the Michigan building.

The legislature having failed to make an appropriation for Vermont, State Commissioner President, Arthur C. Jackson, a native of Waitsfield, personally raised all the money required for the construction and maintenance of the  building.

The main room was furnished in antique style and used for the reception of guests. There was also  a  restaurant on premises that could seat between 1 to 2 thousand people.  A dining room showcased a table from 1750. 

Thanksgiving Day was the Vermont and Hew Hampshire day at the
Exposition.

Among the elaborate displays were those of private exhibitors in the
Palace of Machinery, marble and a granite exhibit in  the Palace of Mines.
