Originally part of Londonderry, with Macks Leg and Andersons Gore added in. Coincidentally, Windham, New Hampshire had earlier been created by taking part of that state’s Londonderry, though no connection can be found other than Benning Wentworth naming both after a close friend, Charles Wyndham, Baronet Wyndham, Earl of Somerset. Wyndham had a short but distinguished career in government. Most consider him to have been a man of good sense and breeding who endeavored to discharge his duties in the best way he could.

Windham attracted settlers early, and by the 1820’s had over 1,000 residents, with over half a dozen villages and two post offices. By 1970, the population had dwindled to 150.

Utilities

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).
