Irasburg (pop. 1,077) is located in Orleans County at the junction of Routes 14 and 58.
Chartered on February 23, 1781, the town was named for Ira Allen, the chief grantee, a member of the Green Mountain Boys during the Revolutionary War and a founding father of Vermont. In 1827, a shirt of mail was discovered here and is now preserved in Washington, D.C.
A point of interest is Irasburg's Lord's Creek covered bridge, which actually spans the Black River.
