Brief History

Fletcher was chartered on August 20, 1781 by the Vermont Legislature. Fletcher was granted by the legislature to some of the men who were then holding the most important jobs in Vermont government. Among them was General Samuel Fletcher. Beginning at Bunker Hill, Fletcher seems to have demonstrated a great deal of military prowess, and his rise through the ranks was rapid. In June 1781, two months before the town of Fletcher was chartered, he was made a brigadier general of Vermont militia.

The settlement of the town was commenced in 1784. The population at the 2010 US Census was 1,277. [1]  [2]
