Mansfield is an extinct town formerly in Lamoille County, Vermont and Chittenden County, Vermont. Mansfield was first surveyed and established prior to settlement in 1763. The earliest settlers in Underhill (west side of the mountain) arrived 1786, so west side of Mansfield would have been settled later than that. The western third of Mansfield on the west side of the peak was annexed to Underhill, Vermont (Chittenden County) in 1839. The eastern two-thirds portion of Mansfield was voted by its citizens into Stowe, Vermont (Lamoille County) in 1848.
