People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Barre, Vermont, USA? 

Barre is a city in Washington County, Vermont, in the United States. Barre City is almost completely surrounded by Barre (town), Vermont, which is incorporated separately from the City of Barre.

On November 6, 1780, the land was granted to William Williams and 64 others. Originally called Wildersburgh, it included what is today both the town and city of Barre. It was first settled in 1788 by John Goldsbury and Samuel Rodgers, together with their families. But dissatisfied with the name Wildersburgh, citizens renamed the town after Isaac Barré, a champion of the American Colonies. In 1895, 4.0 square miles (10.4 km2) within the town was set off and incorporated as the separate city.Wikipedia
