Hardwick, Vermont


Hardwick Vermont is a town in Caledonia County, east of Morrisville and west of St Johnsbury, in the beautiful and scenic "Northeast Kingdom" of Vermont, an area that National Geographic selected as part of their geotourism program for sustainable destinations. The town contains the incorporated village of Hardwick and the unincorporated villages of East Hardwick and Mackville. Hardwick is a commercial center for the region's farming population.

The predominant business following the Civil War was granite quarrying and Hardwick became known as the "Building Granite Center of the World." By 1906, 1200 people were employed in the industry. Buildings around the country made with Hardwick granite include the Pennsylvania State Capitol, Chicago City Hall, Old Post Office Building in Washington, D.C., as well as numerous city halls and custom houses.

Some notable people from Hardwick include: writer Catherine Cate Coblentz; lawyer & author Dorman Bridgman Eaton; Governor of Vermont Lee E. Emerson; author & jogging enthusiast Jim Fixx; congressman Thomas J. D. Fuller; and politician David H. Nichols.
