Commonly called the fish hatchery, this culture station was established in 1891, making it the oldest state hatchery in Vermont. Built in response to the dwindling fish population, the hatchery was funded by an initial state appropriation of $2,400 and built on land donated by Hon. E.N. Spaulding. This site was chosen for its abundant spring water and proximity to the Central Vermont Railroad line. The hatchery building was built in 1891, with an ice house added in 1894 and carriage barn in 1897. The first fry plants in 1892 consisted of brook, lake and rainbow trout. The fish culture station operated with earthen ponds until 2011, when it was heavily damaged by Tropical Storm Irene. A modern facility has since replaced it.
