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

One of several towns granted to Samuel Averill and others on a purely speculative basis. Undoubtedly named for Nathan, Sevignior and Timothy Lewis, who were listed in the grants for neighboring Wenlock (now part of Ferdinand) and Maidstone.

Not an especially good buy for the Averill group. Heavily timbered, rough and mountainous, never attracting even one settler, hence, no villages, post offices or roads other than logging roads.

The entire northern half is taken up with mountains in the 2,000 foot range, all but one of which are unnamed; the southern half is mostly semi-swamp known as Yellow Bogs.

One of five towns (see also Averill, Ferdinand, Glastenbury and Somerset) in Vermont which have been discontinued for lack of interest, so to speak. Population levels have dropped to such a point (or never existed in the first place) that the towns have been disenfranchised (unincorporated). Rather than having its own government (Select Board, Town Clerk, etc.) the town’s affairs are administered by a state-appointed supervisor.
