Waterbury sits in the northwest corner of Washington County, 10 miles from Stowe, 27 miles from Burlington and 13 miles from Montpelier. The town is known as the recreational capital of the state, close to 5 major ski areas, renowned mountain biking trails, the Ice Center, Waterbury Reservoir, and the Winooski River. The village is home to 1,700 residents and thriving with people of all ages, from young families to long-time locals. The award winning schools are well known for their fine arts programs and championship sports teams, fostering great minds and encouraging the growth of local youth in all sectors of life.
Early historical industries of lumber, baskets, children's carriages, leather products, starch, and alcohol have grown and transformed over the past hundreds of years along with the changing times and economic growth. This year marks the 250th anniversary of Waterbury - a true celebration of rich history and a connected community of residents and local businesses. Its vibrant community has attracted many fine restaurants, especially in the past five years, making it an attraction for renowned foodies and locals alike. It has also become a home for area artists of all kinds, from potters to glass blowers, brew crafters to entrepreneurs, and landscapers to photographers. Notable local food and drink connoisseurs include The Alchemist Brewery, creators of Heady Topper, recently rated as the number one beer by Beer Advocate, Prohibition Pig, home of the finest barbeque north of the Carolinas, and Hen of the Wood, celebrating local farmers, fresh ingredients, and sense of community. Some of Vermont’s most well-known companies have also found a home in Waterbury, including the Ben & Jerry’s factory, the ever-growing Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, and popular tourist destination, Cold Hollow Cider Mill.
