Milton Vermont is a town located in Chittenden County, in the "Lake Champlain Valley" region of the state. Local legend says the town was named for a blind English poet, John Milton, but others say it was probably named for William Fitzwilliam, 4th Earl Fitzwilliam, who held the title of Viscount Milton.
The town is home to Omni Medical Systems, a defense contractor for the US Air Force and the Royal Air Force of the United Kingdom.
Some noted residents of Milton include: George Allen, noted clergyman & academic; John G. Haskell, architect who designed Kansas public buildings including the Kansas State Capitol; and George J. Stannard, Civil War era general.
Connecting the Drops is an art and education exhibit about water conservation featuring rain barrels adorned by talented local artists. We install the barrels in Vermont towns in the summer and give people the chance to win the works of art to collect roof runoff at homes around the state. The fourth year of the Connecting the Drops Rain Barrel Exhibit is right around the corner! Funded by the Chittenden County Stream Team, the rain barrels will be exhibited at the Milton Farmer’s Market adjacent to the Hannaford Plaza in Milton, VT from June 9th to July 7th. Five lucky Chittenden County residents will get to take home a uniquely painted rain barrel. Check out the exhibit and sign up to win!
