Dummerston is a town in Windham County in the "Southern Vermont" region. The town is home to the longest covered bridge still in use inside the state borders of Vermont, and to "Naulakha," the Rudyard Kipling home.

The town was originally named after William Dummer, lieutenant governor of Massachusetts. It was renamed "Fulham" by Governor Benning Wentworth in 1753 when it was chartered as a New Hampshire grant, however the name "Dummerston" was still used almost exclusively for the town. It was officially renamed "Dummerston" when the 1937 Vermont legislature made legal confirmation of the fact that the town's name had been Dummerston for over 150 years.

Some notable people from Dummerston include: George Aiken, governor & senator; Tod Bodett, author & voice actor; Robert J. Flaherty, filmmaker & producer; Rudyard Kipling, author & inventor of snow golf; and Charles Sweetser, congressman.
