UVM Morgan Horse Farm |
Weybridge (pop. 824) is located in Addison County, northwest of Middlebury on Highway 30.
It was chartered on November 3, 1761 and organized in 1789. By 1830, Weybridge had 850 inhabitants, the largest number ever recorded. In 1850, a monument was erected to commemorate Silas Wright, a Weybridge native son who invented an improved plow.
Today, half of the township's 11,227-acre area is farmland. The village also is the home of the 435-acre University of Vermont Morgan Horse Breeding Farm. Joseph Battell, the original owner who established his farm in the 1870s, gave it to the U.S. Government to raise Morgan horses in 1906. Today it is a working farm for close to a hundred Morgans.
