Brief History

The Original Town of Rutland was chartered in 1761 and was later divided into the Town of Proctor, the Town of West Rutland and the City of Rutland. At the same time Proctor and West Rutland were created, the village of Rutland was incorporated to give it partly independent status. Six years later, it was made a wholly independent city and Rutland City was incorporated as Vermont's third city on November 18, 1892.

Today the City of Rutland is a shire town and the county seat of Rutland County.
