Windsor had become the political center of the Upper Connecticut River Valley, when, on July 2, 1777, seventy-two delegates gathered at Elijah West’s tavern.

Shortly after convening, the convention nearly disbanded as word came that the British had captured forts at Ticonderoga, New York and Mount Independence in Orwell, Vermont. The Battle of Hubbardton followed on July 7.

According to local folklore, a violent thunderstorm delayed the delegates’ departure long enough that a constitution of the “Free and Independant Republic of Vermont” could be adopted on July 8. The Republic existed for 14 years, before being admitted to the Union as the 14th State.

Vermont’s constitution was unique in a number of ways: it was the first to prohibit slavery , the first to establish universal manhood suffrage without requiring ownership of property, and the first to establish a system of public schools.

The building in which all this took place, known as The Old Constitution House (shown above), is open to the public. There is a small admission fee for adults; children under 14 are admitted free.

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).
