Milton (Vermont)

Milton is a rural area fourteen miles (22km) north of Burlington in Northwest Vermont.

Understand

A rural, population 10000 town north of Colchester, Milton is primarily a commuter town housing workers for nearby Burlington and Essex Junction.

Established 1763, it is historically a forestry and dairy farming community; a now-defunct Milton Cooperative Dairy Corporation (1919-1974) served local farmers. Only a handful of farms remain in operation.

Get in

Milton is on US Highway 7, bypassed by Interstate 89. Both lead north to St. Albans.

US 2 crosses onto Grand Isle VT just south of the town to connect Burlington with the ferry to Plattsburgh, NY.

Get around

The Chittenden County Transportation Authority operates a weekday commuter bus from Burlington.
