Budgets, elections, charter change on tap Here's a rundown on what Stowe voters will face on Tuesday, March 17, Town Meeting Day.
Welcome to Stowe Vermont the ski capitol of the east... and snowboard, and snowshoe, and snowmobile... if it slides, glides, or runs on snow, you'll find it here in Stowe. Along with warm country lodges with fires to curl up before, fine dining, antique shops and clothing boutiques. Stowe hosts some of the finest furniture craftsmen in the country and no less than four outstanding art galleries. Plan a pre-holiday visit and you'll see why we call it Stowe Style!
Stowe was chartered in 1763 and is rich in history. Stowe lies in a broad, fertile valley between Mt. Mansfield and other peaks of the Green Mountains on the west, and the Worcester Range or "Hogback" Mountains on the east. The Waterbury River (or Little River, as it is presently known) with its main East and West branches and various tributaries, flows southward and, above Waterbury Center, empties into the large Reservoir created by the Flood Control Dam. From thence the "Little River" flows southward and empties into the westward flowing Winooski River west of the Village of Waterbury.
The first settlement was made about two miles north of the present Village of Stowe where Route 100 curves to the right and the Hill, or Old Stage Coach Road, runs straight to Morristown Corners and Cadys Falls. A stone monument, near the location of this first house in Stowe, and bearing a commemorative bronze tablet, stands in the grass triangle where the two roads meet.
In addition to the outlying farms, the early settlers congregated in five distinct locations. The original Upper or North Village was situated in the neighborhood of the first house. The present village was called the Center or Middle Village. Then came the Mill Village directly down stream. Still further down stream there was a settlement called Lower Village. There was a separate hamlet of Moscow, originally called Smith's Falls, two miles further down the Little River. Over the years Stowe became the largest township in Vermont in area. To its original area of 36 square miles there was added, in 1840, most of the Town of Mansfield and in 1855, a part of the Town of Sterling (which was split between Johnson, Morristown and Stowe). Stowe was originally a part of Chittenden County; later it belonged to Washington County and finally to Lamoille County.
From such simple beginnings, arising out of extreme local and economic need, the present position of Stowe, as the Ski Capital of the East, originated. The growth and major development of winter sports in Stowe over the last 25 years is a substantial history of its own. The summer visitor, who should thoroughly enjoy the extensive warm season resort facilities of Stowe, will also be interested in seeing the lifts, the ski trails and other extensive facilities designed for the benefit, chiefly of Stowe's winter guests. But he may find it difficult to visualize fully the magnificent winter scene - the great expanse of snow - the thousands of skiers - the healthful fun and the companionship that make skiing one of the biggest and fastest growing outdoor sports in America.
