about Rutland

Rutland is a town located in Rutland County, Vermont. As of the 2000 census, the town had a total population of 4,038. Rutland completely surrounds Rutland City, Vermont, which is incorporated separately from the town of Rutland.

Rutland geography

Rutland is located at 43°46' North, 72°59 West, elevation 164.6 m (540 ft.) . According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 50.71 km² (19.58 mi²)

Rutland history

The town was originally granted in 1761 as one of the New Hampshire Grants and named after Rutland, Massachusetts, the home of the first grantee, John Murrey. It was one of the most successful of those grants because of the excellent farmland and gentle topography.

In the early 1800s, small high-quality marble deposits were discovered in Rutland, and in the 1830s a large deposit of nearly solid marble of high quality was found in what is now West Rutland. By the 1840s small firms had begun operations, but marble quarries only became profitable when the railroad came to Rutland in 1851. As fate would have it, the famous quarries of Carrara in Tuscany, Italy, became largely unworkable because of their extreme depth at the same time, and Rutland quickly became one of the leading producers of marble in the world. This fueled enough growth and investment that in 1886 the marble companies saw to it that the present Rutland City was incorporated as a village, most of the town was split off as West Rutland and Proctor, which between them contained the bulk of the marble quarries. Proctor was named for and almost completely owned by Senator Redfield Proctor. In 1892 Rutland City was incorporated, and the remaining town of Rutland that encircled it was primarily rural.
