Pittsford is a town in Rutland County, of the "Crossroads of Vermont" region, named after William Pitt, a British Whig statesman who led Britain during the French and Indian War.

Pittsford was first settled as a frontier town in 1769, about 60 miles north of Bennington, and is home to two historical picket forts that were used by the militia during the American Revolutionary War: Fort Mott (built in 1777), and Fort Vengeance (built from 1780 to 1781), about a mile north.

A notable person from the area was Samuel Hopkins, holder of first American patent, which was for pearl and potash process, 1790.

Vermont Events in October

Pittsford Haunted House 10/21/16 - 10/29/16

After waiting in the first line there's a fun haunted hay ride up to the house. When you finally get to the house, small groups are led through the maze-like halls in the dark holding hands. Along the way you'll make stops in lit rooms where you'll witness scary scenes, sometimes with a bit of audience participation. It's a ton of fun and pretty scary. I wouldn't bring the little ones or anyone who may scare easily.
