Caledonia county. Hardwick is finely watered by Lamoille river, which gives the town valuable mill sites, and which are well improved for manufacturing purposes. The soil of the town is generally very good, and produces a variety of exports. Between six and seven thousand sheep, and many other cattle, are kept in the town, a large amount of which are annually fattened and sent to market.
Among the first settlers of the town, in 1790, was Mr. Gideon Sabin, whose wife became the mother of 26 children. Population, 1830, 1,216. Hardwick lies 20 miles N.N.E. from Montpelier and 13 N.W. from Danville.
Hardwick today is home to the Vermont Reggae Festival.
