Our beautiful small town is in northwestern
Vermont, nestled against the edge of the Green Mountains about 15
miles southeast of Burlington and about 10 east of Lake Champlain.
Here is our village with the Green Mountains to the east (above),
and our historic Town Hall right on Main Street (right).
Chartered in 1762, Hinesburg's history is rooted
in farming and early water-powered manufacturing. Today, the village
is still surrounded by open green farmland along the small LaPlatte
River, a relatively small town among the growing suburbs around
Burlington. About 6 miles square, the western half is in the Champlain
Valley, the eastern half in the foothills up to 1700 feet in elevation.
The village contains State Highway 116 running
north/south, a lively array of stores and services, the local elementary/middle
school (presently being renovated and expanded) and local 4-town
union high school, 4 churches, a newly expanded library, senior
housing, and a number of manufacturing concerns. Lake Iroquois in
the hills offers a public beach and boat access, and several parks
and recreation facilities offer year-round activities.
