Welcome to Waitsfield




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.  Waitsfield has managed 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.
