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.

It's almost here! Soon the sap will be flowing and maple syrup season will be in full swing. Looks like this sugarhouse is ready.

1. The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has commenced a public awareness campaign to address the issue of proper display and visibility of license plates. Fines could be issued if you are not in compliance. Click here for more information on "proper display and visibility."

2. Haven't received your State of Vermont tax booklet yet? The Town was informed that in 2014 (2013 tax year), The Tax Department printed 30,000 booklets and only 18,750 were returned. 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. Click here to find out how to get a booklet/form or file online.

3. Town Reports are available at Lawson's Store, Graniteville General Store, Quarry Hill Quick Stop, Morgan's East Barre Market, Trow Hill Grocery, Brookside Country Store, Hannaford's and the Municipal Building.
