Arlington Vermont is a town in Bennington County, in the southwestern part of the state. Nestled in a valley between the Taconic Mountains and the Green Mountains, Arlington can be found on the Battenkill River, which is famous for its trout fishing.
One of the largest employers for Arlington residents is the Orvis Company, located in the neighboring town of Sunderland. Orvis is a family-owned retail and mail-order business specializing in high-end fishing, hunting and sporting goods.
Before Vermont was admitted to the United States as the fourteenth state in 1791, Vermont was an independant country and in 1777 Arlington became the first capital of the Vermont Republic. Several of the "Green Mountain Boys" lived in Arlington before the American Revolution, including Thomas Chittenden, Seth Warner, and Remember Baker.
Some noted residents of Arlington in the twentieth century included Dorothy Canfield Fisher, Carl Ruggles, and Norman Rockwell.
