Welcome to Shaftsbury!

Welcome to Shaftsbury, Vermont – right next to everything. Forest hiking, local food farms, historic architecture – you don’t even have to leave the city limits.

Or don’t go anywhere – step out your door at night and let our dark skies bedazzle you with brilliant stars, planets and the Milky Way. Shaftsbury offers the beauty and quiet of rural living with city convenience within easy reach.
