History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The area that later formed the Town of Clarendon was settled by families from lower New England as early as 1762. It and the surrounding area was then part of Albany County, New York, but was later split off as Charlotte County until Vermont declared itself as a republic around 1788. Land claims by New Hampshire were eventually settled, and in 1791 Vermont became a state.

Clarendon now includes the following entries on the National Register of Historic Places:

  • Brown Covered Bridge — bridges the Cold River on Cold River Road in North Clarendon. NOTE: The Brown Covered Bridge is actually on the Upper Cold River Road in Shrewsbury and was damaged during the flooding from Hurricane Irene (added February 21, 1974)
  • Clarendon Congregational Church — Middle Rd. (added August 12, 1984)
  • Clarendon House — off VT 133 in Clarendon Springs (added June 17, 1976)
