Orleans, Vermont

Orleans Vermont is a village in the northwestern corner of Barton, Orleans County, south of Newport, in the beautiful and scenic "Northeast Kingdom" of Vermont, an area that National Geographic selected as part of their geotourism program for sustainable destinations.

Originally named "Barton Landing," as a reminder that this was the first place where craft could be safely loaded for transportation down the Barton River to Lake Memphremagog, the town changed its name to Orleans in 1908 by popular vote.
Though Ethan Allen never had anything to do with furniture, the Ethan Allen Manufacturing company employs about 325 workers locally.
One notable person from Orleans is Henry Alexander Stafford, professional baseball player for the New York Giants.
