Vergennes is a unique community with an extraordinary location on Otter Creek in Addison County. We are centrally located between Lake Champlain, the Green Mountains, the City of Burlington and Middlebury College. Our historic downtown will tempt you with great restaurants and locally owned shops.  Our architecture will remind you of 19th century New England. Our citizens love living here and enjoy sharing their community. On behalf of the citizens and employees of the City of Vergennes, we look forward to meeting you and hope you enjoy your visit.


Vergennes is the smallest and oldest chartered city in Vermont. We are proud of our history and we fondly remember our heritage. Vergennes is a great place to live, work, and raise a family.

Bill Benton

Mayor of the City of Vergennes, VT
