Derby

We Are
Vermont.

Derby Vermont is a town in Orleans County, just east of Newport, VT and Lake Memphremagog, and south of Quebec, Canada. Derby is located in the beautiful and scenic "Northeast Kingdom" of Vermont, an area that National Geographic selected as part of their geotourism program for sustainable destinations. The town contains four unincorporated villages: Beebe Plain, Clyde Pond, Lake Salem and North Derby; and two incorporated villages: Derby Center and Derby Line.

The Derby area is ideal for year-round recreation activities, including skiing at nearby Jay Peak, snowmobiling along VAST trails, and the lakes are ideal for boating, swimming, and fishing during the warmer months. Of course, don't forget the spectacular display of color during the Fall Foliage season!

Some notable people from Derby include: mayor of Milwaukee Wisconsin, Horace Chase; 46th Governor of Vermont, Josiah Grout; Civil War era Medal of Honor recipient known as the "Little Drummer Boy," Willie Johnston; and first Catholic bishop of the Diocese of Hartford, William Tyler.
