Lyndon, Vermont

Caledonia county. First settled, 1788. It lies 34 miles N.E. from Montpelier and 10 N.N.E. from Danville. Population, 1830, 1,822. Lyndon is one of the best townships in the state: its surface is undulating, with a soil of rich loam, free from stone, easy to cultivate, and very productive of wool, cattle, pork, butter and cheese. It is admirably well watered by the Passumpsic and some of its tributaries. Two important falls of that river are in the town, one of 65 feet in the distance of 30 rods; the other of 18 feet. These are called Great and Little Falls, and afford a water power of great extent. Agaric mineral, used for chalk, and a good substitute for spanish white, is found here. The principal village is very pleasant and the seat of considerable business. The scenery about the town is picturesque and interesting. There is probably no interior town in the state that contains more valuable water privileges than Lyndon.

And today...

Lyndonville today is home to the Caldonia County Fair.
