Situated at the corner of Routes 193 and 200, the Thompson Common is one of the loveliest in New England and a frequently photographed site. The common has wide, open lawn space, is graced by a variety of plants and trees and is surrounded by many historic homes. Thompson Common is one of the last green areas in New England where large old elm trees still survive, and we are fortunate to have four of our stately trees on the National Honor Roll of Historic Elms. The Village Improvement Society of Thompson, Inc. is an all-volunteer organization, dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of our common. If you aren't already a member, please consider supporting our mission, and please join us or volunteer at one of our upcoming events.
