1839 - Georgia
Georgia, Vermont
Franklin county. Population, 1830, 1,897. Georgia lies 40 miles N.W. from Montpelier and 8 S. from St. Albans. First settled, 1784. The soil of Georgia is various but generally fertile. It feeds about 11,000 sheep. The Lamoille passes through the S.E. corner of the town, which with other streams, give it an ample water power. This is a place of considerable trade and some manufactures. Over Stone Bridge brook is a stone bridge,—a curious piece of nature's mechanism. Georgia is washed on the W. by Lake Champlain: the village is pleasantly located, and commands some very pretty lake and mountain scenery.

1849 Georgia
The River Lamoille... is the principal stream. In the north-east part is a pond, covering thirty or forty acres. It is surrounded by high lands, except a narrow outlet to the north, and is bordered by a grove of alders. The mill privileges are numerous; there being no less than twelve. The settlement was commenced in 1784 and 1785, by Andrew Guilder, from Agremont, Mass., and William Farrand, from Bennington, Vt., with their families. During the two following years a great number of families, mostly from Bennington and the western parts of Massachusetts, moved into the town, and a considerable number of young men without families. The first settlers of Georgia had their share of those privations and hardships which are incident to the settlers of new townships. They at first had to go to Burlington and Plattsburg for their grinding, but the population increased so rapidly, that mills were soon erected.
