Here in the valley of the East Branch is America the way it used to be, beautiful in all seasons. Peaceful valleys and hidden hollows, rugged mountains, waving fields of corn--indeed a place for renewal. Wildlife is abundant, deer graze in meadows; wild turkeys are plentiful; beavers dam our streams, create fish ponds and challenge man with their skill and determination; quail flush from thickets; coyotes bark at dusk and the fox flaunts his plume as he darts across the road.

Colchester, with its shopping village of Downsville and including the hamlets of Cooks Falls, Horton, Shinhopple and Corbett, provides a wide variety of services for community residents, travelers and visitors.

These services come with the traditional warm, friendly helpfulness of our small mountain community. Many of them have served generations and are deeply rooted in our hills and valleys. They are here because they like it here-and they want you to like it too.
