One of several Vermont parcels granted to New York City lawyer John Kelly, spelled Belvedere in the grant. Kelly was a land speculator on a grand scale, but more popular than many of his New York counterparts. After the Revolution, he worked closely with William Johnson (for whom the neighboring town of Johnson is named) in the effort to get Vermont admitted to the Union.

Kelly, being quite Irish, is believed to have named this town for Lake Belvedere, one of the most beautiful bodies of water in Ireland. The word itself is a translation from Italian for “beautiful view”; in Kelly’s time, as now, the word was also a common noun for a small or open summer house from which to enjoy the scenery.

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).
