The Town of
Waitsfield has a rich history and heritage grounded in the Vermont
doctrine of freedom and unity. Our agrarian past has left
a legacy that is prominent in our landscape and continues to influence
the character of our community. While we are indebted to our
past, the town’s recent history has been one of transition.
The changes that have affected the town mirror those influencing
the state as a whole. Our resource based economy, founded
on agriculture and forestry, is now built on recreation and an enviable
quality of life. Thus, the town has been transformed from
a quiet farming town to a resort destination, bedroom community
and, increasingly, a center for innovation and commerce. This
transformation has not been without costs: to tranquility, to the
landscape and to the insular nature of the community. Waitsfield
has managed, however, to retain many of the best elements of its
past and merge them with a modern economy driven by tourism, technology,
accessibility and respect for our natural and social heritage.
