     Danville is the chief town.  This county is bounded east by Connecticut River and Essex County, south by Orange County, west by Washington County, and north by the county of Orleans.  The eastern range of the Green Mountains extends through the western part of the county.  It is watered by many fine streams, but the Connecticut and Passumpsic are its chief rivers.  A large part of the county is high and good land; that along the rivers is excellent.  It produces wheat and other grain, beef cattle, horses, and sheep.  There are some sulphur springs in this county; limestone and granite are abundant.
