About Us

The OurChester.org website, founded by Lew Watters in 2007, was originally created for the purpose of providing citizens information concerning a controversial issue that was dividing the town at that time. Our mission was to give voice to the opposition to the proposed quarry by O'Neil Sand and Gravel, which has been resolved. The permit and appeal were denied.

Since that time, our mission was to highlight important community issues affecting this beautiful community in central Vermont. Now, we are expanding that mission, working towards greater tourism and business development, along with strengthening our community outreach and support for the the wonderful projects taking place in this vibrant town.

Lew Watters is now Editor-At-Large for an expanded news and information website that we hope will benefit residents, business and visitors alike.

As editor Mary H. Nowlan wrote in Vermont Life, "Times change... People here work hard, value self-reliance, enjoy the outdoors, cherish the landscape, help their neighbors, and think for themselves." In that spirit, we will continue to publish news and events that enhance and enrich our Chester.

In addition, we want to encourage tourism, promote area businesses and support cultural development. This is a unique and picturesque town that includes the Stone Village, a unique cluster of stone houses, a church and a one-room school house, as well as modern and energetic artists, businesses, craftspeople, and others who contribute to a vibrant and growing community.
