Wells VT Lodging, Real Estate, Travel & Visitor Information
The town of Wells was granted a charter by the Governor of New Hampshire in 1761 and was incorporated as a township 107 years later (to the day) in 1868. It is interesting to note that all of the original settlers were originally from Connecticut. Dairy and potato farming were the livelihood of most original residents and continues to be the town’s main industry today. The town encompasses three square miles of rolling hills, a beautiful lake, and majestic mountains. The southern half of the five mile Lake St. Catherine resides in Wells. Wells is located in the south-west corner of Rutland county and has Poultney as a neighbor to the north, Middleton to the east, Pawlet to the south, and Granville, New York to the west. Today, Wells is home to less than 1,000 residents, two stores, a real estate agent, and a garage. Local points of interest include: Lake St. Catherine, Lake Bomoseen, Lake George (New York), and Lake Champlain; all of which are within comfortable distance. To the south, historic Dorset and Manchester, Vermont offer many attractions to visitors. Wells was the site of Jesuit Mission for Native Americans.
