Pittsford is a town in Rutland County, of the Rutland-Killington 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.
