George the Third by the Grace of God of Great Britain, France and Ireland, King Defender of the Faith, Etc., to all to whom these Presents shall come, Greeting…

So goes Gov. Benning Wentworth’s 1764 Charter to Corinth for its settling and habitation, for which the 68 original grantees would pay a rent of one ear of Indian Corn annually. Our town has seen a lot of changes since then, of course, but we are still rural in nature, still abundant with rivers and undeveloped woodlands, still proud of being a little bit different. As it says in our exceptional town history, published in 1964 to commemorate our bicentennial, “It is not every man’s lot to gain Corinth.”

Corinth is located in the center of Orange County, touching the borders of Vershire, Bradford, Newbury, Topsham, W. Fairlee, Orange, Washington and Chelsea. Unlike most other Vermont towns, there is no village hub in the center (perhaps the reason visitors are so easily lost?). Our one substantial village is East Corinth, once home to the Bowen-Hunter mill, which made wooden bobbins for the textile industry.

Our town office is in the hamlet of Cookeville, to the west, where there is a second  post office, two Dairies of Distinction, an award-winning cheese making farm and an elegantly renovated Academy building where the town’s scholars once attended high school. Other settlements include Corinth Corner, West Corinth, Corinth Center, So. Corinth and Goose Green (so named for the color painted on the feet of the geese being driven—as in, walked or herded—to markets in Boston). Each of these hamlets at one time contained all the businesses necessary to a self-sufficient rural life but are now mostly residential.

            Like most of Vermont, our economy is no longer primarily agricultural. Some of us commute to our day jobs or work at home in front of a computer screen. Others of us are loggers, artists, writers, farmers, business people, carpenters and contractors—differing perhaps in how or when we arrived here but still valuing the rural nature of our town and over 200 years of spirited independence.
