Brief History

The Town of Chittenden, named for the first governor Thomas Chittenden, was granted by the legislature of the independent State of Vermont in March 1780 to Gershom Beach and his 65 associates. On the same day, the Town of Philadelphia was granted to his son Samuel Beach. Philadelphia was slow to settle, and in 1816 the southern half of Philadelphia became part of the Town Chittenden, making Chittenden the largest township in the state.[1][2]
