Search Mendon Vermont

Mendon is located in Rutland County northeast of Rutland on Highway 4.

Originally chartered on February 23, 1761 as Medway, the village's name was changed to Mendon in 1827.

Mendon was the home of Gen. Edward Hastings Ripley, commander of the Union's occupation of Richmond during the Civil War. The town's Civil War record is remarkable, in that half of its legal voters were in the military.

According to the 2000 Census, Mendon has a resident population of 1,028 within an area of slightly more than 38 square miles.

A point of interest is the Norman Rockwell Exhibition & Gift Shop.
