Called “shooting star” because of a meteor show viewed here during its original construction in 1934.
This structure was built in 2001.

Hi Jamie, where is this shelter located? I was wondering if this was Manchester, VT? Thanks, Laura

This Shooting Star Shelter is way up north near the Canadian border. The nearest ones to Manchester are Spruce Peak and Bromley Shelter.
