About Norwich, VT

Norwich, Vermont is located in the center of the state just across the Connecticut River from Hanover, New Hampshire. It was chartered in 1761 by Governor Benning Wentworth, the royal governor of the Province of New Hampshire. Here, Capt. Alden Partridge founded The American Literary, Scientific, and Military Academy, the forerunner of Norwich University in 1819. (The Norwich University moved to Northfield, VT in 1866 - an interesting story you can learn about at the Norwich Historical Society).

With a population of about 3000 people with professions of many categories, we are sometimes considered a bedroom community of Dartmouth College, but that overlooks the unique qualities of this historic Vermont town.

Check out the wonderful restaurants, shops and service businesses, and enjoy the many seasonal activities. You'll come to love and appreciate Norwich the way we do.
