Contents

Brief History

Shelburne was chartered on August 18, 1763.  Early settlers were required to perform several duties in exchange for their lots of 200-300 acres, such as cultivating a certain minimum number of acres and reserving all worthwhile pine trees for use by the Royal Navy as masts. The first settlers actually arrived in 1768, and began cutting lumber for shipment to Canada. [1] [2]
