History

 The town of Wilmington was named for the Earl of Wilmington, Spencer Compton, on April 29, 1751 who was mainly accountable for the appointment of Benning Wentworth in 1741 as the Governor of New Hampshire. Wilmington was not inhabited in the mandatory period of five years and was granted again to a wholly different group on June 17, 1763. The town was given the name of Draper in honor of the famous father and son Boston printers, Richard and John Draper.

Those who inhabited the town did not find the name favourable, so they established a practice of utilizing the initial name. Vermont place names being a fairly casual matter in the early days, no official action was ever taken, and the current name is more a matter of tradition and usage instead of law.

 Area and Climate

 The town of Wilmington is located in Windham County in Vermont and is drained by the Meadow Brook, Wilder Brook, North Branch Deerfield River, Ellis Brook, Rose Brook, Hall Brook, Negus Brook, Haystack Brook, and Beaver Brook. It is situated in Green Mountains’ Deerfield Valley and crossed both by Vermont Route 100 and Vermont Route 9.

 The climactic area is characterized by huge seasonal differences in temperature, with cold winters, warm to hot and summers. As stated by the Köppen Climate Classification system, the town of Wilmington has a moist continental climate, which is shortened to “Dfb” on weather maps.

The approximate median value of a condo or house in the year 2000 was $120,100 and $221,264 in 2011.

 Lifestyle and Things to Do

 There are so many things to do in Wilmington that a one-day trip isn’t enough for you to appreciate how charming this place is. The beautiful village is a paradise for shoppers as it provides a wide range of special and one-of-a-kind merchandise. Nearly all village stores here are lodged in historic buildings, plus there are a number of art galleries featuring in-house artists. There are also frequently held gallery nights for some late-night shopping.

 Wilmington is bordered by a rustic mountainous scenery that ha full of spectacular vistas and natural wonders. Whether you need to relax or want to become adventurous, the place has it all.

 Located in the Deerfield Valley of Southern Vermont, we are home to many winter sports.  Mount Snow offers skiing and snowboarding.  Many areas offer cross-country skiing and tubing, and snowshoeing.  Our mountains and rural landscape provide a terrific opportunity for the fast-growing sport of snowmobiling as well. 

The town can be your go-to place for hiking during the summer and fall. The views from the mountain top are definitely worth the climb. Meanwhile, those who love golf will love the excellent courses the area has in store for them. Furthermore, you will find a number of tag sales and antique stores that will make your treasure hunting even more rewarding.

Lake Whitingham is the biggest lake in Vermont, and this is something you shouldn’t miss when you visit the area. It flooded a huge area and displaced businesses and homes. The present dam owner, U.S. Gen New England, offers numerous access areas to the lake for swimming, boating and picnicking.

Farming was once the town’s major industry, so visiting a local farm with your family gives you the opportunity to meet some farm animals as well as experience the farming heritage.
