Welcome to the Bread Loaf Campus
The Bread Loaf campus is home to the Bread Loaf School of English and Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference and has a storied past. The original mountain and forest area in which the campus is located was willed to Middlebury College in 1915 by Joseph Battell, breeder of Morgan horses, proprietor of the local newspaper, and spirited lover of nature. Read more about Bread Loaf history and discover how the school revolutionized the idea of creative education.
The campus is located approximately 20 minutes east of the College in sight of Bread Loaf Mountain in the Green Mountains of Vermont. The buildings are rustic and range from dormitories to small houses, a few of which are located on country roads less than a mile from the main inn.
