Real savings on all you do!

As the village of Barton Landing (so named for its location on the Barton River) grew in size and economic importance, residents began to feel that the name made it seem subsidiary to Barton village. In 1909, Barton Landing became Orleans. Though Ethan Allen never had anything to do with furniture manufacture, the company which bears his name has a plant in Orleans, and is the major employer in the area.

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).
