Welcome to the Town of Pawlet, Vermont!

We are located in the beautiful Taconic Mountains 25 miles southwest of Rutland on Vermont’s western boundary. The closest urban concentration is the Village of Granville, just across the New York State line to the west. Adjacent towns to Pawlet are Wells on the north, Danby on the east, Rupert to the south and Granville and Hebron, New York, to the west. Our town is rural, with two major population centers in Pawlet Village, located at the junction of Routes 30 and 133, and West Pawlet, located at the junction of Route 153 with Railroad Street and Egg Street, close to the Town border with Granville, New York. The Town offices are located in Pawlet Village. West Pawlet developed around the former railroad depot and the slate industry, with numerous quarries in the vicinity.
