About Corinth, Vermont
WHERE IS CORINTH?
Corinth is located in the center of Orange County, touching the borders of Vershire, Bradford, Newbury, Topsham, W. Fairlee, Orange, Washington and Chelsea. Unlike most other Vermont towns, there is no village hub in the center (perhaps the reason visitors are so easily lost?). Our one substantial village is East Corinth, once home to the Bowen-Hunter Mill, which made wooden bobbins for the textile industry. Corinth was granted a charter by King George III in 1764 and has a long history of active settlement. Read more here ›
Our town office is in the hamlet of Cookeville, to the west, where there is a second post office, two Dairies of Distinction, an award-winning cheese making farm and an elegantly renovated Academy building where the town’s scholars once attended high school. Other settlements include Corinth Corner, West Corinth, Corinth Center, South Corinth and Goose Green (so named for the color painted on the feet of the geese being driven—as in, walked or herded—to markets in Boston). Each of these hamlets at one time contained all the businesses necessary to a self-sufficient rural life but are now mostly residential.
WHAT WE DO, WHAT WE VALUE
Like most of Vermont, our economy is no longer primarily agricultural. Some of us commute to our day jobs or work at home in front of a computer screen. Others of us are loggers, artists, writers, farmers, business people, carpenters and contractors—differing perhaps in how or when we arrived here but still valuing the rural nature of our town and over 200 years of spirited independence.
