One of several parcels granted to a group headed by Timothy Andrews.

A carpenter by trade, Andrews built and ran an inn in his home town of East Haven, Connecticut, after which he named this Vermont town. The records show that his holdings were purely speculative, Andrews having no intention of ever settling here. Ironically, he died in Vermont, while on a trip to inspect his holdings.

Notes about utilities:

  • One electric or phone company indicates that company serves the entire town. More than one of either indicates each serves different areas of town.
  • A listed cable company MIGHT mean the entire town is covered, but not necessarily. More than one listed indicates each serves different areas of town.
  • Unless your area is one served by Vermont's only gas utility, your only option is bottled gas (any dealer).
