Danby, Vermont

map

Located in Rutland County, Danby was granted in 1761 to a group of men from Dutchess County, New York. It is thought that the town was named for Thomas Osborne, fourth earl of Danby and Leeds.

Part of Danby lies in the Taconic Mountains, with the highest point being Dorset Peak, at 3804 feet.

Danby is perhaps best known for its marble, which has gone into the construction of many famous buildings, including the U.S. Supreme Court building, in Washington D.C.

Danby claims two literary figures as its most famous citizens: the poet Thomas Rowley and Nobel Prize winning novelist Pearl Buck.
