Brief History

The town of Proctor was chartered on November 18, 1886. Proctor is self-styled as "The Marble Capital of the United States," and rightly so. In fact, marble brought the town into being. The Vermont Marble Company was formed in 1880. The president of the new company was Redfield Proctor (1831-1908).

The Redfield Proctors made their home in Sutherland Falls, a village which was half in Rutland and half in Pittsford. In 1882 the name of the village was changed to Proctor, in Redfield's honor. In 1886 the town of Proctor was created around the village by taking about 2,000 acres from each of the two towns.[1][2]
