Vermont is positioned in both the northern and western hemispheres. As part of North America and located in the northeastern region of the United States (one often referred to as New England), Vermont is bordered by the states of Massachusetts, New York, and New Hampshire and the Canadian province of Quebec.
Vermont is a state in the northeastern United States, in the New England group of states. The area is 24.9 thousand km 2. The population is more than 621, 6 thousand people (2004). The administrative center is Montpilier. Major cities: Burlington and Rutland. See counties in Vermont.
Vermont borders New Hampshire to the east along the Connecticut River, Massachusetts to the south, New York State to the west, and Quebec to the north. Vermont is the only New England state that does not have access to the Atlantic Ocean.
The greenest state in the USA (3/4 of the territory is covered with forests). The ridges of the Appalachians, covered with maple forests, occupy most of it (Mount Mansfield is the highest point in the state, 1339 m). In the river valleys and near Lake Champlain there are flat areas. Eastern Piedmont (Vermont Piedmont) is an area of intensive agriculture. In the northeast are the uplands known as the Northeast Kingdom. The climate is temperate and humid.

Before the arrival of Europeans, the state was inhabited by the Iroquois and Mohican tribes. In 1609, the Frenchman S. de Champlain was the first to explore these lands and announced that they belonged to France. He called the local mountains “Green Mountains”, hence the name of the state itself (French vert mont – green mountain). In 1666, the French built Fort St. Anne on Isle la Motte. In 1724, the British built Fort Dummer, the state’s first permanent settlement, and the city of Brattleboro was subsequently built here. At the end of the 18th century, England fought against the French, and clashes with the Indians also became more frequent. As a result, Vermont was ceded to England under the 1763 treaty. During the Revolutionary War Vermont supported other colonies and fought against England. A farming movement, the Green Mountain Boys, was formed to defend their allotments against the New York landowners. In 1775, farmers led by I. Allen (Allen, Ethan) stormed the British fort Ticonderoga (Ticonderoga). In 1777 the state declared its independence. In 1791 it became the 14th state of the United States.
In the early 19th century, Vermont was one of the centers for both legal and smuggling trade between the US and Canada. In 1823 between the lake. Champlain and the Hudson River built the Champlain Canal. After World War II, industry and tourism became the most important industries.
Among the attractions: the University of Vermont (in Burlington, a rich collection of works of art from different countries), the maple grove in St. Johnsbury (Museum of Maple Sugar); crystal clear lakes (including Lake Champlain), the Green Mountains National Forest.
