Often confused with Pittsford, also in Rutland County, which was granted by Benning Wentworth twenty years earlier. The only similarity is in the names of the two towns, even though one is on the west side of Chittenden town and the other is on the east.

In town they say that the name of Pittsfield was chosen because some of the proprietors had come from Pittsfield, Massachusetts, where that town had been named for the elder William Pitt, as was Pittsford. The only real village the town ever had is Pittsfield, located on Vermont Route 100 on the extreme eastern side.

Utilities
[Top]

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).
