Panton, Vermont


Panton is a town in Addison County, of the "Mid Vermont" region, located on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain, between Ferrisburgh on the north and Addison to the south.

It is possible the town was named for either Panton, Lincolnshire, England, or from Francis Panton, who was a grantee of other towns, but not this one.

In 1778, Benedict Arnold's navy battled a superior British fleet on Lake Champlain and was defeated. The flagship Congress and four smaller ships were run aground in Panton at what is now known as Arnold Bay.

For centuries, locals have quarried and used a native stone, known as Panton Stone, for building foundations and walls.
