Although it is not certain, it seems likely that Benning Wentworth named this town in the Grants for Westminster, England, now part of London. In Wentworth's time Westminster was a separate town, adjacent to Putney and Fulham (as Westminster, Vermont is near Putney and Dummerston, originally Fullum).

Utilities
[Top]

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).
