Wolcott Vermont Real Estate Community Information

Wolcott, Vermont, sits along the banks of the Lamoille River, about seven miles south east from the town of Hyde Park and 22 miles north of Montpelier. In the early times, Wolcott was home to several mills and about 1,500 sheep roamed its pastures.

The Lamoille River attracts fishermen, artists and photographers, as well as canoe and kayak enthusiasts. An authentic railroad covered bridge, Fisher Bridge, marks a viewing and picnic facility on the river’s edge. This area is handicap accessible.

Wolcott was chartered in 1781. Population by 1830 was estimated at 492. The 2000 U.S. census reveals a population of 1,456, making Wolcott a well-established community offering both proximity to neighbors and a sense of great privacy.

General Oliver Wolcott, the second-named grantee, was held in very high esteem by Vermonters. He was a member of the Continental Congress and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Early Vermont leaders, the Allens and Chittendens, knew and had great respect for General Wolcott.

Today, Wolcott is home to other adventurous and entrepreneurial spirits whose endeavors have a significant impact on the economy of the region, granting it special recognition in circles spanning from local and regional residents, seasonal residents, students and outdoorsmen.

The most immediately evident example of this is Buck’s Furniture. Beginning its original operations as a groceries and dry goods store in 1957, the family-owned and operated establishment takes pride in offering one of the most diverse and expansive selection of furniture, meeting the needs and whims of home owners, families, apartment dwellers, vacation homes and students alike. Its facilities boast 200 showrooms on three floors, making Buck’s Furniture an impressive landmark in the heart of Wolcott village.

Sterling College also has a foothold in Wolcott via the Center for Northern Studies. This unique facility houses highly qualified professors with decades of experience conveying their knowledge of the fauna, flora, peoples, natural history and processes of the Circumpolar North to earth-minded students. The Center’s remote location and habitat provide the perfect background for research and learning. The Northern Studies library contains an impressive 4,000 volumes on topics ranging from sociology to botany, native art and northern literature.

Also remote, but not to be dismissed, because of its immediate significance to area children and families, is the Magic Garden Waldorf School. The Waldorf method has a well-established reputation as a nurturing environment. Its curriculum evolves with each stage of the natural development of students from preschool to high school. It puts arts and activities at the service of academics, thus providing hands-on motivation to learn.

Wolcott offers a peaceful, out-of-the-way community life for the homesteader or for those who favor a sense of seclusion. However, it is also ideally situated for easy commute to nearby Morristown, Hyde Park, Hardwick or Stowe, their schools and amenities.
