Welcome to the Town of Barre. Nestled deep within the Green Mountains of Central Vermont our small, but growing, community is home to approximately 7,600 residents. Officially chartered in 1781, the Town of Barre incorporates 5 separate villages and is known for its large granite quarries, panoramic mountain views, beautiful natural scenery, outstanding school, great residential neighborhoods, and many modern recreation facilities. As an integral part of the Barre-Montpelier urban area, our families enjoy all the conveniences of an urban area while residing in some of the state's most pristine, rural environments. Please feel free to visit our community anytime.

This is one of the many reasons we choose to live in Barre Town! The view is from LittleJohn Road overlooking the Websterville Road. Photo by Assistant Town Manager, Andrew Dorsett.

Fewer than 7,000 taxpayers used forms from the booklet to file their taxes. To eliminate waste it was decided to print only a limited number of booklets since the trend is to file online and to use the downloaded form from the state website.
