Brief History[edit | edit source]

Bloomfield was chartered on June 29, 1762 and was originally named Minehead.  At the request of the townspeople, the name was changed by the Vermont legislature to Bloomfield in 1830.

The population and economy of Bloomfield has risen and fallen over the years. At its height, several hundred men were employed in lumbering and milling operations around a village then known as South Bloomfield; its location is now marked only by a cemetery. The only settlement to be found in the town today is at the junction of Vermont Routes 105 and 102, in the extreme southern corner.  The population at the 2010 US Census was 221. [1]  [2]
