Publisher Description

Four years after the American Revolution, in 1787, Colonel Jacob Davis became the first to clear land in the new settlement that had been chartered as Montpelier. The name honored France for its support of the American patriots. Disasters, industries and larger-than-life personalities helped shape the city's identity. And it didn't take long for Montpelier to make a name for itself--its location created a prime manufacturing hub, and the Vermont Central Railroad made travel convenient. The city also became the scene of the fire of 1875 and the Gould-Caswell murder. Join local historian Paul Heller as he compiles significant moments of Montpelier's past.
