Before the introduction of automobiles, towns often cleared their roads in the winter with a snow roller: a large wooden roller that packed down the snow, allowing townspeople to ride along the roads in sleighs.

Vermont Historical Society Executive Director Steve Perkins and ABC 22 & Fox 44 Anchor Mike Hoey head over to Peacham to visit the state's only museum dedicated to snow rollers.
