Vermont is one of six New England states and one of the smaller states of the United States. It is bordered on the west by New York, on the north by the Canadian province of Québec, on the east by New Hampshire, and on the south by Massachusetts.

Despite its proximity to the coastal settlements of the early colonists in the 17th century, Vermont did not receive its first permanent settlement until 1724, and its population grew slowly for 50 years thereafter. Vermont entered the Union on March 4, 1791, the first new state admitted after the nation’s founding by the 13 original states.

Most of Vermont lies outside the intense economic and population concentrations that characterize the Eastern Seaboard. Its economy is based on industry, although the large amounts of farmland and pastureland give the state an agricultural appearance. Its urban centers are small, as are most of the industrial enterprises. In recent years Vermont has received increasing attention as a vacation area, both in summer and winter. Its rural atmosphere and scenic beauty are highly attractive to residents of nearby urban regions in both the United States and Canada.

The name of the state is derived from the French words vert (green) and mont (mountain), and Vermont is known as the Green Mountain State. Montpelier is the capital of Vermont. Burlington is the largest city.

Vermont ranks 43rd in size among the states, with a total area of 9,615 sq miles, including 366 sq miles of inland water. It is the second largest of the six New England states, ranking next to Maine. Vermont has a maximum length, from north to south, of 156 miles and varies in width from 37 miles in the south to about 89 miles along the northern border. Average elevation is about about 1000 feet.

In Vermont, winters are generally long and cold and summers mostly short but warm. Average January temperatures range from more than about  22° F in the extreme southwest corner to less than 14° F in the northeast. Temperatures below 0° F are frequent during winter, and they occasionally drop to -30° F or lower. July averages are usually above 70° F in the lowlands and are somewhat lower in mountainous areas. There are few hot days, and summer nights are usually crisp and cool.

Precipitation in Vermont is well distributed throughout the year. Less than 32 inches of rain falls annually in the Champlain Valley, the driest part of all the New England states, and more than 50 inches occurs in most of the mountainous areas. Snowfall normally is about 90 inches (equivalent to about 9 inches of rain) and remains on the ground through most of the winter. Snowfall in the mountain region usually exceeds 120 inches per year.
