Chester is best known for the two historic districts, both of which are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. One of them, Stone Village, was named so because of the dominance of granite houses; the second, Chester Village, features a typically New England federal and colonial aesthetic. Chester is home to charming inns, antique shops, galleries and great restaurants. Additionally, it caters for cyclists, boaters and skiers, lying within driving distance of Okemo, Mount Snow and Killington. Stop by in September and you’ll also be able to attend the Chester Fall Festival.
