On August 29, 2011, tropical storm "Irene" caused every river and stream in Vermont to flood, resulting in 3 deaths and 1 missing person, and over $200 million in damages. Irene destroyed covered bridges, some over 100 years old, and decimated roads, which caused over a dozen rural towns to become isolated for days immediately following the storm. Our very own Briggs Carriage Company was nearly destroyed during the storm and was on the verge of being condemned. Luckily for us, our beautiful building was purchased by a new owner and brought back to life by a complete renovation from top to bottom.
Four years later, Lisa Phelps is now the proud owner of Briggs Carriage Company Hair Lounge & Spa.
