The town of Cambridge encompasses the villages of Cambridge and Jeffersonville. It sits at the foot of Smugglers Notch, famous for one of New England’s most scenic roads, caves and the Smugglers Notch Family Resort. It is also the fair-season link to Stowe, another acclaimed New England Resort town also known as the Ski Capital of The East.
Cambridge was chartered on August 30, 1781. Some of the original grantees, Samuel Robinson, Jonas Fay and Tom Chittenden, were also founding fathers of Vermont.
Cambridge and Jeffersonville are nestled in the Lamoille river valley. This area offers unlimited opportunities for river sports, fishing and hiking. In addition to this, the Smugglers Notch Resort offers educational programs and activities, keynote speakers, conferences, horseback riding and swimming for local and visiting children and adults.
In an effort to establish strong resources for residents and visitors alike, community members have come together to create Cambridge Crossroads, a project whose mission is to highlight an awareness of all the beauty and fascination to be found in the town of Cambridge. Cambridge is a true New England community with a rich tradition of family values, agriculture and entrepreneurship.
Indeed, the Cambridge area abounds with locally-owned and operated antique shops, artisan shops and events, farm markets and delightful restaurants. Jeffersonville is home to the Mary Bryan Memorial gallery, “which maintains a permanent collection, a year long schedule of changing exhibitions, and offers workshops and programs that nurture appreciation of and education in the visual arts”. The Vermont Maple Outlet, conveniently located between the centers of Cambridge and Jeffersonville, produces award-winning maple products and features Vermont specialty foods enjoyed by residents and visitors from around the world.
Located within 45 miles of Essex Junction and Burlington, the Jeffersonville/Cambridge area offers all the peace and quiet of rural living with ease of access to the amenities of the big city. With a population estimated to remain under the 2,000 mark as of 2010, it is the place of residence of parents who trust in the quality education and diversity of programs offered by the Cambridge Elementary School, as well as the many professionals who prefer the small community life and values.ResidentialLandCommercialMulti-Family
