Lyndon is a town of hills and meadows in a corner of Vermont known as the Northeast Kingdom. The falls on the river that runs through town were the source of mill power for the early settlers, and later became the power source of electricity. Lyndonville, the new village, grew from the railroad, and became the town's active center.
The people of Lyndon have always been indomitable. They stared, only for a moment, at the ashes of thirty-six business establishments and then rebuilt immediately, only to rebuild again in another thirty years when flames struck once more. They would also survive the flood of 1927, a railroad strike, the Depression, and the end of the railroad era. Amidst all this, the people of Lyndon kept their high spirits, enjoying fairs, horse racing, parades, band concerts, and sports. Clubs and organizations served community needs and created opportunities for both community service and social functions.
