Old Mill Road Recording is unlike any other studio around. It provides the opportunity to record pristine sound while overlooking a breathtaking river view in the heart of the Green Mountains of Vermont.
Located just three hours from New York City and Boston, Arlington has been a destination place - and place of inspiration - for generations.
Embracing (and exposing) its 18th century post-and-beam structure, the studio smartly combines the history of the area with its future. The Gristmill of East Arlington, Vermont was built in 1764 by Remember Baker, who was first cousins with Ethan Allen & Seth Warner. The three cousins formed the Green Mountain Boys. They were the leaders of the Revolutionary War in Vermont, and The Mill served as a meeting place for them. The area also has a rich artistic legacy. In the mid-20th century, Arlington, Vermont and its surrounding towns were home to five Saturday Evening Post illustrators (Norman Rockwell, Mead Schaeffer, Gene Pelham, John Atherton, and George Hughes), the cartoonist Don Trachte, Americana icon Grandma Moses, poet Robert Frost, author/influencer Dorothy Canfield Fisher, composer Carl Ruggles, and fine artists Lea Erlich and Rockwell Kent.
Originally a three story 18th century townhouse, The B Side has been transformed into a relaxing space that serves multiple purposes.
The first floor features office space, an open kitchen, working counter space, the equipment room, the privacy room, and a luxurious handicap-accessible bathroom with roll-in shower, washer/dryer, and cosmetics vanity, which serves as a dressing room when clients are recording music videos. The second floor’s exposed post & beams, high vaulted ceilings, breathtaking river views, and mirrored wall allow for several functions. The 550 square foot space can serve as a second live room (monitored and hard-wired to the control room on The A Side), creating the opportunity to record large ensembles and choirs. The space can also serve as a rehearsal studio, a dance studio, a small performance space, or it can be utilized as a large green room.
