Bridgewater (pop. 888) is located in Windsor County, just west of the village of Woodstock, nestled in the heart of the Green Mountains. It comprises four communities: Bridgewater, Bridgewater Corners, West Bridgewater and Bridgewater Center. Locals call their town Briggs.
Chartered on July 10, 1761, Bridgewater is the home of one of Vermont's premier scholars, Zadock Thompson. The town was known for its woolen mill in the days when sheep farming was popular in the area.
It also is home to wholesale merchants and manufacturers such as Long Trail Brewing Co, Skaskiw Case & Cabinet, Shackleton Furniture, and White Raven Drum works.
