The Charterhouse of the Transfiguration is the only Carthusian monastery in the United States, located on Mt. Equinox, outside Arlington, Vermont.

The 7,000-acre (28 km2) property was donated by Joseph George Davidson, a retired Union Carbide Corporation executive.

The charterhouse was designed by architect Victor Christ-Janer & Associates of New Canaan, Connecticut, and fabricated of Vermont granite blocks.
