The Vermonter remembers his heritage and the newcomer who becomes a Vermonter is even keener for the remembering.
Dr. Arthur W. Peach
"One real way to know Vermont is to visit every town in the state," said Dr. Arthur Wallace Peach in 1954 when he challenged the state's 377, 747 citizens, as well as its seasonal visitors, to join his newly established 251 Club of Vermont.
In the nearly six decades since, thousands of Vermonters and Vermont enthusiasts from across the country have taken up the quest, often injecting it with their personal interest in nature, art, photography, architecture, history, museums, covered bridges, farms and farm stands. . . the list goes on. Great for bicyclists, motorcyclists, antique car enthusiasts, and even canoeists like David and Lyn Perrin of Charlotte, Vermont, who spent four years paddling their canoe in all 251 towns and cities to complete their quest.

Six years and 25,000 miles after starting his 251 quest, Paul Webb of Lincoln, Vermont, made the last lap on his 1999 BMW F650 motorcycle in the appropriately-named town of Victory on June 17, 2012.
With four towns shy of completing his 251 quest, Joe Cook of Dummerston, Vermont rode into Greensboro and reached another milestone 25 years and over 10,000 miles in the making. County by county, Joe rode his touring bike the full length of every paved road on the Vermont state highway map.
