Von Trapp Historic Tour - As Maria von Trapp once said, "Our life is like a beautiful story that happens to be true." The von Trapp family's journey is a remarkable story. The Von Trapp’s fled Austria just before WWII and started the Von Trapp Singers in Philadelphia. They later bought a home in Stowe, VT, where they ran the Trapp Family Music Camp. Maria wrote an autobiography that inspired the play and movie, The Sound of Music, and her story became an American legend.
