Waterbury is the gateway to Vermont’s most visited tourist destinations. Waterbury Village is home to a colorful mix of residential neighborhoods, civic and cultural facilities, and independent, small businesses.
Waterbury Village grew as a regional transportation and commercial center in the mid-19th and early 20th centuries, which is reflected in the many historic commercial and residential structures erected during this period. The Village is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a historic district and contains an impressive collection of historically and architecturally distinctive structures. Many of Waterbury’s civic and institutional resources are located here, including the municipal offices, the primary school, the post office, several churches, a public library and museum, the Amtrak Station/Visitors Center, the Waterbury State Complex, the fire station, and several recreation facilities.
