Dummerston was first chartered on December 26, 1753 by Benning Wentworth. In its charter the town was named Fullum. Fighting with the French and Indians made it impossible for the grantees to establish a settlement within five years, as was stipulated in the original grant, so Wentworth renewed the grant three times: in 1760, 1781 and 1764.
The name Dummerston was adopted very early, and used almost exclusively for the town. However, it had apparently never been changed officially, so the 1937 Vermont legislature made legal confirmation of the fact that the town's name was, and had been, Dummerston for over 150 years.
