Gallery 160, located at 160 East Main Street (Route 2) in Richmond, has become Chittenden County’s first authorized Vermont Ambassador INFO site.

This is a new program of the Vermont Dept. of Tourism & Marketing, leveraging willing businesses to assist the state’s many visitors. Local INFO sites will enhance the Vermont experience for the thousands of guests who come to the state each year. The availability of information off the interstate encourages people to travel more of the state’s smaller roads. The Official State Map tells people to look for the blue INFO signs to learn more about each area.

Commissioner of Tourism & Marketing, Bruce Hyde, announced, “It is great to have our first Ambassador INFO sign in Chittenden County up at Gallery 160 in Richmond. This is an excellent location for travelers to get information and directions to get around the area. My hope is we will see these INFO signs throughout the state where travelers can meet a friendly Vermonter who will provide maps, guidebooks, local information and provide a bathroom facility upon request.”

Gallery 160 is owned by husband and wife photographers, Scott and Kelly Funk. When asked why he was participating, Scott Funk said, “All of us in Vermont need to do our part to make every visit here a special one.”
