New for Spring from Orvis

Listed among the grantees are several considered to be the founding fathers of Vermont, including Samuel Robinson, Jonas Fay and Tom Chittenden. The strong feelings Vermonters had for the Revolution and the fact that many of the grantees originated in Massachussetts suggests that the town's name was chosen to commemorate the site of an early encounter between American and British troops.

Neighboring Towns

This is a basic geographic reference, intended to show relative location of adjacent towns. Directional accuracy is limited to 16 compass points. There isn't even the slightest suggestion that one can necessarily travel directly from one town to the next (as in "You can't get there from here").

Notes about utilities:

  • One electric or phone company indicates that company serves the entire town. More than one of either indicates each serves different areas of town.
  • A listed cable company MIGHT mean the entire town is covered, but not necessarily. More than one listed indicates each serves different areas of town.
  • Unless your area is one served by Vermont's only gas utility, your only option is bottled gas (any dealer).
