Green Initiatives & Environmental History for: Vermont

Basic History

The Vermont region was explored and claimed for France in 1609, and the first French settlement was established in 1666. The first English settlers moved into the area in 1724. England gained control of the area in 1763 after the French and Indian Wars. In 1777, Vermont adopted its first constitution, abolishing slavery and providing for universal male suffrage without property qualifications. Not until 1791, after many delays and misunderstandings and, most important, after the dispute with New York was finally adjusted in 1790, did Vermont enter the Union. It was the first state to be admitted after the adoption of the Constitution by the 13 original states.
