Lamoille County, Vermont
Hyde Park is the shire town.—This county was established in 1836. It is bounded N. by Franklin and Orleans counties, E. by Orleans and Caledonia counties, S. by Washington county, and W. by Chittenden and a part of Franklin counties. This county lies on the Green mountain range, and is the source of many streams. The river Lamoille passes nearly through its centre, and, with its tributaries, gives the county a great hydraulic power. The elevation of the county renders the soil more adapted for grazing than for tillage, yet there are large tracts of excellent meadow bordering its streams. Manufactures flourish, and the exports of beef cattle and the products of the dairy are valuable, and annually increasing. In 1837 there were 28,677 sheep. Population, 1830, 8,930.
