Montpelier City Guide

Montpelier is the capital of Vermont and the seat of Washington County. Founded in 1781 by Colonel Jacob Davis, the community was named for the French town of Montpellier, in honor of France's aid during the American Revolution. With a population of just over 8,000, Montpelier is the smallest state capital in the U.S.

The Winooski River (known locally as the "Onion River") flows just south of downtown Montpelier, fed by several smaller tributaries that cut through the residential districts. The downtown area is a vibrant mix of life insurance companies and smaller, locally owned galleries, bookstores, and restaurants. Most downtown businesses offer space to local artists to display their works, lending the area an almost bohemian air.
