Wardsborough, Vermont

Windham county. This town is 15 miles N.W. from Brattleborough, 20 N.E. from Bennington, and 10 N.W. from Newfane. It was first settled in 1780. Population, 1830, 1,148.

The surface of the town is hilly and in some parts rocky: the soil is hard, but rendered productive by the industry of its people. Wardsborough is watered by West river, and contains a number of minerals, of which tremolite and zoisite are the most important, and of which fine specimens are found. There are some mills in the town, but the water power is not extensive.
