Historic Waterbury Land Marks
the Guptil homestead -- is an excellent example of a Greek Revival farmhouse. A Classic Cottage, this is a five bay, story and a half building with twin interior end chimneys. The unusually elaborate central door is framed by pilasters and Doric columns with 3/4 sidelights and a full transom.
Vermont Historical Architecture, a Second Celebration, published by the Preservation trust of Vermont estimated the year of construction as 1845.
The barn on the left side of the road (Tanglewood Restaurant) was built in 1944 replacing an earlier one. Operations on this 131 acre farm ceased in 1961.
Currently residing in the homestead is a fifth generation Guptil, while next door, on a portion of the original farm resides sixth and seventh representatives of Stephen J. Guptil, apparent original builder.
