Bakersfield, Vermont

Bakersfield was granted in 1787 to Luke Knoulton of Newfane, who in term sold it to Joseph Baker of Massachuetts a couple of years later, which resulted in the name.

Bakersfield was a regional education center in the 19th century, home to both Bakersfield Academy and Brigham Academy. The latter was started by Bakersfield resident Peter Bent Brigham in 1879. Mr. Brigham would go on to found the Boston hospital that still bears his name.
