Compton, Québec, Canada

A record of the earliest beginnings of Compton are yet to be found. It is a small community that is just across the Vermont border about 25 miles north of Newport, Vt. where Interstate 91 enters Canada. It undoubtedly was founded because of the needs of farmers in the area to have a central place to buy and exchange the goods that they were producing. In the early days, there were no good roads, railroads or vehicles capable of transferring goods quickly from one place to another. So the farmers of the area founded a place that was easy to get to and where one could find general stores, mills and trade shops. Other towns were established, but did not develop and now no longer exist.

The village of Compton was never very large. It generally had less than 500 residents. The entire Township of Compton reached a peak population of 3,013 souls in 1861.
