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.

Don't let this be a scene from your home! Fire Saftey week is October 4th - 10th. For more information on fire safety visit the National Fire Protection Association or visit the Barre Town Fire Department Facebook page.

The disease is most commonly spread to domestric poultry by infected waterfowl, through direct contact or contact with droppings, during migration periods.
