WHO WE ARE
Welcome to The Village of Hyde Park, Vermont! We're a historic New England Chartered Village, incorporated in 1895. Nestled in the heart of the Green Mountains, the shire of Lamoille County is home to two historic inns, a vibrant performing arts centre, and strategically located about an hour from the Burlington Airport, and midway between both Stowe and Smuggler's Notch Resorts.
Always seeking to foster a resilient and forward-thinking community, the Village of Hyde Park became the first system in Vermont to use electricity for heating in 1899. In 1906, water piping was extended down Main Street. The Village has continued to extended community services to include wastewater service, sidewalks, the Opera House, Planning and Zoning, public parks and more.
HYDE PARK SOLAR ,
100% owned by the Village
of Hyde Park to produce electricity. Financed by U.S. Treasury and Clean Renewable Energy Bonds. Local ownership eliminates 3rd-party developers and allows ratepayers access to benefits not available with outside ownership. Although weather conditions affect results, The Waterhouse Project is rated to produce 13% of HPE annual requirements.
THE ELSA FRENCH PARK
Donated to the Village by the children of Dr. Edward B. and Elsa French, the Elsa French Park is being developed into a safe and accessible public gathering space for the entire community. Lilacs are thriving and the raised beds are teeming with hearty heirloom varieties designed to attract pollinators. Funded by the AARP, the recent installation of ADA accessible picnic tables provide a pleasant place to relax in the shade.
