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

Since some of the grantees and many later settlers came from Connecticut, it is assumed that this town is named for that state’s Hartford, which in turn is thought to have been named for Hertford, England, meaning “a stag (hert or hart) ford”. In Benning Wentworth’s time, e and a were often interchanged, and both were pronounced “ar”.

As with Bellows Falls in Rockingham and Wells River in Newbury, the village of White River Junction carries a considerably higher recognition factor than the town in which it is located.

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).
