An iconic center of entertainment in Enosburg, Vt.
ENOSBURG FALLS – With the opening of 242 Texas BBQ, a little bit of Texas has come to Enosburg Falls.
If the name sounds familiar, that is because David and Cyndi Maibaum are already recognized in Franklin
County as seasoned veterans of the county’s food scene.
The previously had a food trailer that, every summer, would park along Route 242 in Montgomery,
drawing fans from as far away as Quebec City and New York City.
David traces his brisket-making days even farther back than the Montgomery food truck, to the Lone
Star State where he served in the U.S. Air Force. “I got to Texas, and the second I got there I fell in love
with barbecue,” David said.
“That’s what you do in Texas,” he said. “At any given time at night in the backyard, you look either way and
all you see is smoke. All your neighbors are doing it.”
ST. ALBANS — Northwestern Vermont just got a striking opportunity to develop its workforce.
The Working Communities Challenge selected a team of northwestern Vermont organizations as one of
eight grant award winners.
That means our area now has professional assistance in concretely planning how to develop our local
workforce, as well as $15,000 to fund the six-month planning process.
The Northwest Regional Planning Commission led this area’s application process, with aid from the
Franklin County Industrial Development Corporation, United Way of Northwestern Vermont, Franklin, Grand Isle Restorative Justice, RiseVT and Northwestern Medical Center, following on those organizations’ October 2018 discussions of the so-called “Formidable Four” — four issues hurting our local economy: affordable housing, child care, transportation and substance use disorders.
ENOSBURG FALLS — It’s hard to imagine leaving your non-human companion’s health in warmer hands
than those at Enosburg Veterinary Care.
The freshly opened veterinary clinic is one of the renovated buildings lighting up the corner of Depot
Street, right next door to the Quincy Hotel.
Those who entrusted their pet care to the Animal Doctor, on Water Tower Road, will no doubt be happy
to hear the Animal Doctor’s staff has transferred to Enosburg Veterinary Care.
That includes the business’s new owners, Annie Wagner and Sarah Branon-Menard.
But the best news is that the clinic’s new space is triple that of the former location, allowing the clinic to
take on new clients again.

ENOSBURG FALLS — The Quincy Hotel, on Depot Street, is now accepting reservations — progress,
depending on how you look at it, either two years or more than 100 in the making.
One of the rooms at the renovated Quincy Hotel.
Betsy Dorminy owns the hotel. But she speaks about it with the keen awareness that she does not own
its history, that she is, in a sense, a deeply welcome guest there.
Wandering the Quincy’s seven guest rooms with Dorminy — four double rooms and three two-room
suites — is like an elegant archaeological expedition.
She pointed out a wooden ceiling, discovered when the renovators peeled back broken plaster,
subsequently restored and left alone. A restroom that was, in the building’s original layout, the
“gentlemen’s toilet” — the “ladies’ toilet,” Dorminy noted, was on the other side of the door.
