Vermont is in the north-east of the United States of America and is bordered to the north by Quebec, Canada, to the east by New Hampshire, to the south by Massachusetts, and to the west by New York. It is famous for it's landscape and over 100 covered wooden bridges from the 19th century. It is primarily forested.

The most prominent early Indian tribes in Vermont were the Abénaki and Mahican. The western Abénaki Indians were composed of subdivisions including Sokoki, Missisquoi, and Cowasuck. Most of the Indian tribes have disappeared from Vermont through warfare, disease, or migration.

Vermont was claimed for France in 1609 and the English gained control in 1763 after the French and Indian wars. In 1791 it became a state and also joined the Union - the first state to join after the initial 13 colonies.  Vermont's name comes from the French phrase “vert mont,” meaning “green mountain.”

Some of the main industries are brewing, logging, ice-cream and frozen desserts, tea and coffee processing. It is the largest producer or maple syrup in the United States.

The state capital is Montpelier and one of the least-populated state capitals in the US - 7,436 (2018). It is also notable for being the only state capital without a McDonalds or Burger King.

Famous people from Vermont include Calvin Coolidge (US President) and Henry Wells (Wells Fargo Co.)
