Fair Haven (pop. 2,928) is located in Rutland County at the junction of US Routes 4 and 22A.
It was chartered on October 27, 1779 and its area is 18.22 square miles. In 1783, the town's chief grantee, Irish-born Matthew Lyon, built saw, paper and grist mills at the local falls and a forge in the vicinity. He owned Fair Haven's original store, inn and newspaper. Lyon also represented Vermont in Congress.
Today, Fair Haven is home to several slate industry companies. Some of the state's most elegant Victorian architecture, including several marble-covered mansions, can be observed here. Other attractions include Lakes Bomoseen, Champlain and St. Catherine, all within easy driving distance.
