Brief History

Whiting was chartered on August 6, 1763. For a period of nine years after the grant of its charter nothing was done toward the settlement of Whiting. The first settlers had only been in the town a few years when the Revolution began, and during the war the town was abandoned, as were many other towns in what became Vermont.   [1]  [2]
