Cabot, VermontEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
Cabot was chartered on August 17, 1871 by the Vermont State Legislature. Cabot started out as an army town. When the town was officially organized, eight years after the chartering, six out of seven people elected to fill town offices had been commissioned Continental Army officers (the odd civilian was elected to the office of highway surveyor).
It has been said that a man could live in Cabot for seventy-five years and have been a resident of four counties without ever leaving his place of birth. The town has been successively part of the Vermont counties of Cumberland, Orange, Caledonia and, since 1855, Washington.
Cabot did have what the proprietors of every town hoped for: good farm lands, plenty of mill sites and no excessively high hills. At first the town grew quite rapidly, then after the Civil War it started to decline. The population at the 2010 US. Census was 1,433.
