And there are many other historic and natural gems along the roadway: the babbling brook that meanders through the DAR State Forest in Petersham; the pleasant hiking trails throughout the woods of Rutland State Forest; the aging barns on the working farms still lining the highway north of Barre center; the quaint Barre Town Common with its classic white bandstand and tall church spire that reaches heavenward; and the spring that bubbles out of the ground a short distance from the highway in Oakham.
