The second-named grantee, General Oliver Wolcott, was held in only slightly less esteem by Vermonters than George Washington. Son of one of Connecticut’s most outstanding colonial officials, he graduated from Yale and became a noted juror in Litchfield. He later served as a Captain in the French and Indian Wars and became a Commissioner for Indian Affairs, in which role he brought about settlement of the Wyoming Valley – New York – Vermont boundary dispute. He was a member of the Continental Congress and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. During the Revolutionary War he rose to the rank of Major General, after which he served as Lieutenant Governor, then Governor of Connecticut. The Allens, the Chittendens and many other early Vermont leaders were from the Litchfield area, and they all knew and respected General Wolcott.

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).
