Mount Holly, Vermont

Mount Holly was granted by the Vermont legislature in 1792 by taking land from both Ludlow and Wallingford and creating a new town. It is located in Rutland County.

The earliest settlers were Quakers, which also explains the name. Mount Holly was also a Quaker settlement in New Jersey.

Mount Holly is the site of Summit, which was the highest point of the former Rutland Railroad and the site where the last spike connecting Boston and Burlington was driven in in December of 1849.

-Unincorporated villages and settlements: Belmont, Healdville, Hortonville, Mount Holly village
