BRATTLEBORO — A circus group has found some land in Vermont to build a 15,000-square foot training school.
The New England Center for Circus Arts has been looking for a new home for the past four years.
The Brattleboro Reformer reports the group has bought land near the former Renew Salvage building off of Putney Road.
The group runs its programs out of four different locations in Brattleboro and their outside trapeze is set up in Guilford. It needs to raise more than $1 million to build the center.
