Brief History

Goshen was chartered on February 2, 1792 by the Vermont State Legislature and organized in 1814. In Vermont, as in Connecticut, place names like Bethel, Canaan and Goshen were chosen because they carried connotations of rich, fertile lands, and because it was hoped they would attract settlers. Goshen is the smallest town in Addison County and one of the towns with the least population in Vermont. Population was 164 at the 2010 Census. [1] [2]
