Vergennes, Vermont


Vergennes, Vermont is located on Route 22A in Addison County, 25 miles south of Burlington and 12 miles north of Middlebury. The City of Vergennes is Vermont's first incorporated city, making it the oldest city in Vermont. Vergennes is also the smallest city (by population) in Vermont.

The city was named for the Comte de Vergennes, French Minister of Foreign Affairs and negotiator of the Treaty of Paris. It was in Vergennes, on Otter Creek, where the fleet that would defeat the British on Lake Champlain was built and armed. A historic marker can be found on the east side of Otter Creek where the shipyard once was.

Vergennes is also home to the Basin Harbor Club, a summer resort where you'll find wholesome family fun, romance, and recreational sports for every conceivable type.
