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

In many respects, Stratton resembles Somerset, high in the mountains and never having many residents. It is perhaps the presence of a major ski area that has kept it from becoming the ghost town Somerset now is.

Nothing whatever is known about the origin of the name. There are Strattons named in other New Hampshire Grants and Vermont Charters, but without discernible connection to this town, and it was named before it was settled. Why Benning Wentworth chose the name is unknown.

Stratton is one of four municipalities in the state with a local option sales tax of 1%(the others being Burlington, Williston and Manchester).

  • Unless your area is one served by Vermont’s only gas utility, your only option is bottled gas (any dealer).
