The first history of Burlington VT, “The Most Livable Small City”; The back stories for Burlington's buildings, streets, and neighborhoods.

The first history of the Green Mountain State's largest city, home of the state university, and commercial and retail center for a majority of Vermonters, and enjoyed by the Quebecois who live just across the Canadian border. It is a story that outlines the development of a small village nestled between a river and a lake that became one of New England's urban jewels: the economic 'engines' that nurtured the community; the various ethnic groups that settled in Burlington; and the political shifts that announced cultural changes. Burlington: A History of Vermont's Queen City provides the stories of the people, places, and events that resulted in the buildings, streets and neighborhoods of today. With 28 photographs, an 1898 city map, and extensive index.
