Fitzcarraldo in Vermont

From Vermont Public Radio:

A nearly 200-year-old schoolhouse has been moved back to its original site in the Orleans County town of Brownington. . . .

Thousands of Vermonters cheered as 44 oxen pulled the two-story Orleans County Grammar schoolhouse up a hill nearly half a mile.
[George Bodmer let me know that the real Carlos Fermín Fitzcarrald appears in a recent New Yorker article. Thanks, George.]
