Our Market Area
Due to our location in a resort destination area, seasonal population figures for our coverage area often swell to well over 20,000.
Vermont Route 9 is the only highway across southern Vermont. The communities of Bennington and Brattleboro are only 20 miles in either direction.
Route 100 is the major north-south highway and serves as the connecting artery between all of the towns in our area.
