Probably was named for Goshen in Litchfield County, Connecticut, from which many of the grantees came. It generally is considered that Goshen in Connecticut was named for the land in Egypt which had been given to Jacob and his family, and where the Israelites had lived until the Exodus. In Vermont, as in Connecticut, place names like Bethel, Canaan and Goshen were chosen because they carried connotations of rich, fertile lands, and because it was hoped they would attract settlers, rather than for any higher Biblical connotations.

Not to be confused with a village of the same name in the town of Newbury

Utilities

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).
