 Fays Corner, Jonesville, Richmond.
 


      "The town is finely watered by Winooski and Huntington Rivers, on the banks of which are good mill sites and large tracts of beautiful meadow. The village is neat, and the center of considerable travel. This is a healthy place, and noted for the longevity of its inhabitants . . . The first attempt to form a settlement here was made in 1775, by Amos Brownson and John Chamberlain, with their families; but they abandoned the town in the fall, and did not return till the close of the revolutionary war. In the spring of 1784 they returned to the farms, on which they had made beginnings, accompanied by Asa and Joel Brownson, Samuel and Joshua Chamberlain, Jas. Holly, Joseph Wilson and Jesse McFairlain." 

(Gazetteer of Vermont, Hayward, 1849)
