Atherton Law Firm Location

Conveniently located on Route 12, 7 miles South of Montpelier and 2 miles North of the common in Northfield, the law office of Steven H. Atherton is at the intersection of Route 12 and Cox Brook Road in Northfield Falls. The corner lot sits high above the Dog River and is adjacent to the first of the three covered bridges along Cox Brook Road. Directly across Cox Brook Road is the Falls General Store. The Dog River is renowned for its trout fishing. In fact, Mr. Atherton, who is not a very good fishermen, even caught a 21″ brown trout just a few hundred yards downstream at the Falls.

Driving Directions

From the South. Exit I-89 at Exit 5. Take a left on to Route 64 heading towards Northfield. Travel several miles along Route 64 until it intersects with Vermont Route 12 North at the bottom of a long hill. Turn right on to Route 12 heading North. Drive past Norwich University and the Northfield common. The office is about two miles past the common on the left, just past the Falls General Store. If the speed limit increases to 50 mph again, you know that you have gone too far!

From the North. Exit I-89 at Exit 8. Continue straight for about a mile and then take a right onto Route 12 heading South towards Northfield. Drive for about 7 miles.

As you enter Northfield Falls you will see the welcome to Northfield sign on the left and the speed limit will change from 50 mph to 30 mph.

You will then see a big gray house with maroon trim on the right. That is the office. (See the photo on this page.) Just past the office, on the same side of Route 12, you will see the Falls General Store.

From the East or West. If you are coming from the East or West and using one of the back roads, such as: the Warren Mountain Road that enters Roxbury at Route 12A, the Moretown Road that becomes Cox Brook Road, or the Cross Town Road in Berlin (more commonly known as Earhart Hill), then you probably know how to get to the office. If not, please call for specifics as locals may tell you that you can’t get there from here!
