Building near Kipling home in Vt. open to renters

Posted: Updated:

DUMMERSTON, Vt. (AP) - A building on property in Vermont that was once the home of author Rudyard Kipling is now open for people to rent.

The carriage house sits just a stone's throw from Naulakha, the Dummerston home that Kipling built in the 1890s and where he wrote "The Jungle Book" and other works.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports the Landmark Trust USA is preparing the Carriage House, which dates to the 1890s, for its first renters at the end of the month.

The first floor housed Kipling's carriage and a greenhouse. Servants' quarters were upstairs.

The trust already rents out the home to short-term tenants. The home, named after a book Kipling co-authored about an Indian jewel, was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1993.
