*Area, Population and Density rankings refer to Enosburgh’s relative position among Vermont’s 255 civic entities (9 cities, 242 towns, 4 gores and grants). Complete rankings are here.

One of the six towns (others being Berkshire, Richford, Montgomery, Wyllis (now Jay) and Westfield) granted in 1780 as a means of raising money to pay for Vermont’s participation in the Revolution. Many of the state’s founding fathers (Tom Chittenden, several Fays) were among the grantees; it is named for General Roger Enos, who had been commander of all Vermont forces; he was also Ira Allen’s father-in-law.

While a Connecticut resident, Enos had served with colonial troops, rising to rank of Colonel of the Second Connecticut Regiment. He commanded the rear guard under Benedict Arnold in the 1775 expedition to Quebec. Enos turned back with his troops, most of whom were ill, and was accused of cowardice and desertion, but eventually acquitted. Leaving Continental service, he moved to Vermont, where he came to be considered second to none in military matters, and gained the high esteem of the populace.

  • Unless your area is one served by Vermont’s only gas utility, your only option is bottled gas (any dealer).
