About The Town:   Our beautiful town is in northwestern Vermont, nestled against the edge of the Green Mountains, southeast of Burlington.

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 LaPlatte River, and is a relatively small town outside Burlington. About 36 miles square, the western half is in the Champlain Valley, the eastern half in the foothills of the Green Mountains.

The village contains State Route 116 running north/south, a lively array of stores and services, the local elementary/middle school and local 4-town union high school, a number of manufacturing concerns and several parks and recreation facilities including Lake Iroquois, offering year-round activities.

Climate:  Most of Hinesburg is located in the Lake Champlain valley which runs north-south along the western edge of the state. Due to the low altitude and tempering effect of the lake, this is Climate Zone 4 with an average last frost about late May and average first frost in late September. Winter cold snaps are not uncommon, however, and can reach -20 to -30F. The eastern part of Hinesburg is located on the first ridge of the Green Mountains where it is Zone 3. Residents of the village on a rainy November morning often stare at 3" of snow on the cars of people who live just 1 mile east of the town center. Spring thaw, usually in late March or early April, brings "mud season", where in the hilly dirt roads can become almost impassable for a day or five. Summers are relatively temperate.
