Brief History[edit | edit source]

Victory was chartered on September 6, 1781 by the Vermont Legislature.

In 1970 there were only 42 residents, but eighty years earlier the place had been rather busy. Heavily timbered, it had been a magnet for the lumbermen; later, large quantities of potatoes were grown for starch and alchohol. In its heyday, there were seven villages, three post offices, five schools, six lumber mills, a starch factory, a granite quarry, four railroad stations and a hotel, plus various boarding houses for the factory and mill workers. Today, there are only a few more people than forty years ago. The population at the 2010 US Census was 62.

Victory made national news in 1963 when electricity was installed in the town for the first time, one of the last two towns in the state to get power. [1]  [2]
