The only place in the world with exactly this name, thought to derive from one of two English towns: Tynemouth in Northumberland or Teignmouth in Devonshire, both of which are pronounced "Tinmuth" as is this Vermont town

Tinmouth's brief period of fame came when it was designated County Seat in 1781, until Rutland took over the job in 1784.

Neighboring Towns

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).
