*Area, Population and Density rankings refer to Bridport’s relative position among Vermont’s 255 civic entities (9 cities, 242 towns, 4 gores and grants). Complete rankings are here.

It has long been held that the town was named for Admiral Alexander Hood, first Viscount Bridport, whose family gave England several illustrious naval officers. However, since the title had not even been created when Benning Wentworthgranted and named the town (in fact, not for another 34 years), it is much more likely that he named it for the town of Bridport, Dorsetshire. Wentworth had used names of other towns in that area for towns in both New Hampshire and The Grants.

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).
