One of only three places in the world with this name; in all three, the pronunciation is with the accent on the first syllable (TOP-sum).

Locally, it is said that the name comes from Topsham, Maine, and this appears to be borne out by the fact that some of the first settlers came from there. Unquestionably, they had bought their land from the original grantees, who were either friends or neighbors. Maine’s Topsham was settled in 1730, and most probably named for Topsham, Devonshire, England.

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).
