Welcome to the Town of Sunderland

The Town of Sunderland is located within Bennington County, in Vermont´s southwest corner.  In recent years residents and visitors have branded this beautiful region nestled between the Taconic and Green Mountains as The Shires of Vermont.  Located between Bennington, the South Shire, and Manchester, the North Shire, Sunderland is surrounded by mountains and enriched by the waters of the famous Batten Kill that runs through the valley.  Sunderland and the towns around it have historically been a popular four season destination for those seeking an authentic Vermont experience.  You’ll find canoeing, tubing, camping, mountain biking, hiking and skiing close by.  All within a 4 hour drive from New York City, Hartford, Boston, Northern New Jersey and Canada.

Latest News and Announcements:

Rose Stone Retirement Party
Rose Stone, who has served the town of Sunderland in various roles since 1991, is retiring.  Sunderland residents and friends are invited to gather to thank and acknowledge her service to the town over the last 27 years.  The event will take place at the Sunderland Town Hall, 104 Mountain View Road in Sunderland, on Wednesday, September 26th, 2018, at 4 P.M.  It will be pot luck with everyone bringing a dish to share.

Rose Stone was appointed to the roles of Assistant Town Clerk and Treasurer in 1991.  Shortly thereafter, in 1994, she was elected a Justice of the Peace.  She has continued to serve in all three of those roles since that time.  Sunderland residents know “Aunt Rose” best from voting on election days. She has worked at the polls each election since 1991. That represents seven Presidential election cycles, 27 Town Meeting days, and all the primaries in between.  The event will also act as an early celebration of a significant birthday for Rose coming up this December.
