Vernon: A Great Place to Live!
Vernon is a quiet, scenic, rural, safe, and mutually supportive community! We love the views of our forested hills, rolling farmland, scenic ponds, brooks and waterfalls, and the broad Connecticut River. We're proud of our excellent elementary school (and our students have secondary school choice available), our active recreation center with pool, tennis, picnic and softball facilities, well-maintained trails in our Municipal Forest, other natural areas, and a family-friendly beach on the river.
The town's rich history includes an extensive Native American presence and a long, continuing farming tradition. Vernon is in easy commuting distance from Brattleboro, Vt., Greenfield, Mass., and Keene, N.H., and just two hours from downtown Boston. Town-wide broadband supports small businesses and home offices. Nearby are multiple opportunities for skiing, hiking, and boating, as well as a wonderful array of cultural organizations: museums, theaters, music festivals and much more.
