Nestled in the quiet hills of Vermont's Green Mountains lies the shire town of Hyde Park. Located in the heart of Lamoille County, its vibrant history reflects the essence of small-town culture, community, and pride. Chartered in 1781 and first settled by John McDaniel in 1787, the town was named after Capt. Jedidiah Hyde, who settled in town with his family from Norwich, Connecticut. One of Vermont's former governors, Carroll S. Page, was an integral part in the town's development in the late 1800s as he was successful in establishing the world's "largest calfskin factory." Surviving the flood of 1927 and the hurricane of 1938, the town in the 1900s experienced growth in business and prosperity. Through vintage photographs of tree-lined streets, mountain views, dairy farms, mills, churches, schools, and the people who bring the very essence of this community to life, Hyde Park celebrates the spirit of this historic town.
