Poultney is a very small and beautiful town. People are extremely kind and inviting. Being such a small community, everyone knows everyone which I think is beautiful because I come from a very large city.

Great small town that is close enough to a city like environment without being overbearing. Everything that you need is within walking distance and the community is close knit.
This community is impeccably engaging and essentially cooperates with one another s necessities to effectively manage a variety of scenaries.
