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.

Sunderland Town Hall Gardens
In September 2015 Sunderland residents donated flowers from their garden to be planted at the new Town Hall. The gardens have thrived and will be on the Arlington Garden Tour (bonus garden on the tour) in July 2018. We would like to freshen the gardens up, adding some more perennials and annuals. So when you are out garden shopping pick up an extra plant or six pack to donate. Full sun plants are best and ones that don’t need a lot of watering. We could also use 4 bags of pine mulch. I will be at Town Hall on Saturday, June 9 from 10 AM to 12 PM to receive and plant. If you cannot make that date feel free to call me, Colleen York at 375-6513 and I can pick up.
