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

One of the many towns granted to Samuel Averill of Connecticut (see also Averill); spelled Limington in its charter, and the present spelling was adopted early on. The origin of the name is uncertain: there is no other place in the world with exactly that same original spelling. In the absence of other evidence (and given that colonial spelling conventions were virtually nonexistent), it is reasonable to say that either Leamington Spa, Warwick or Lemington, Newcastle could have provided the original name.

Except for the fertile intervale lands along the Connecticut River, there has never been much settlement, the population never greatly exceeding 200.

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).
