Hinesburg, VT

Chartered in 1762, Hinesburg's history is rooted in farming and early water-powered manufacturing. Today, the village is still surrounded by open green farmland along the LaPlatte River, and is a relatively small town outside Burlington. About 36 miles square, the western half is in the Champlain Valley, the eastern half in the foothills of the Green Mountains.
