  • Brattleboro sits by where the Connecticut and West Rivers converge. The area was once home to the Abenaki tribe. European  settlers arrived to claim the land in the early 1700s. When the French  and Indian Wars erupted, the Abenaki sided with the French and went to  war with the settlers in the area. At that time, a fort was built called  Fort Dummer to afford protection to the settlers and their families.  Sadly, even after the war ended, additional battles would continue  between the Indians and the settlers. Eventually, the area started to  calm and the town of Brattleboro truly took shape. It was home to the first store in the state of Vermont. The arrival of the railroad helped the region thrive even more.
