Tunbridge, Vermont

Tunbridge is a town in Orange County, of the "Eastern Vermont Gateway" region and is home to the Turnbridge World's Fair, one of THE annual events to attend in Vermont.

The town includes three village centers: North Tunbridge (also known locally as "Blood Village"), Tunbridge Village ("Market") and South Tunbridge ("Jigger"). The entire center of Tunbridge Village, including the fairgrounds, was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.

Tunbridge was likely named for William Henry Nassau de Zuylstein (1717-81), fourth Earl of Rochford, Viscount Tunbridge, Baron Enfield and Colchester. Also, the town is in Orange County, which is named for de Zuylstein's great grandfather, King William III (William of Orange).

The discovery of mineral springs in the 1600s made England's Tunbridge a fashionable resort for the titled and wealthy, and such springs were discovered in Vermont's Tunbridge in the 1800s, making it a similar destination for many years.

Some notable people of the area include: Harry David Lee, founder of Lee Jeans; Stephen Mack, a merchant & politician; John O'Brien, a film maker & director; Hyrum Smith, a leader in the early Latter Day Saint movement; Joseph Smith, Sr., father of Joseph Smith, Jr., the founder of the Latter Day Saint movement; Samuel Harrison Smith, a missionary; and Fred Tuttle, a farmer, movie actor, & candidate for political office.
