Caledonia county. This is an elevated township between the head waters of Onion and Lamoille rivers. Cole's pond, a large sheet of water lying in the town, produces a small mill stream, called "Joe's Brook." The surface is generally rough, but the soil in some parts of the town produces good crops. Walden was first settled in 1789. It lies 22 miles N.N.E. from Montpelier and is bounded S.E. by Danville. Population, 1830, 827.
