Like many Stowe Area towns, Hyde Park is a small town with a rich history. The Town of Hyde Park was established by a charter granted by Governor Thomas Chittenden in 1781 to soldiers of the American Revolution. One of those soldiers was Captain Jedidiah Hyde.
There is some debate about the town name, however. Some say it harkens back to two other fashionable Hydes: Hyde Park, a popular recreation spot for Londoners of the time; and New York’s, Hyde Park, on the Hudson. Others say it’s about hides: at one time Hyde Park was a major tanning center and at one time was one of the largest dealers in hides and skins in the world.
The Town was officially organized in 1791 after Vermont became the 14th state, and in 1836 it became the Shire Town (county seat) of the then newly formed Lamoille County
Hyde Park, VT is the county seat of Lamoille County. Hyde Park consists of a charming Vermont village surrounded by the township. Adjacent to Morristown and Johnson it is centrally located to all area activities.
