Wheeler Field Use Survey 

Wheeler Field is a new town park in West Bolton that comprises about 3.6 acres of property which had been slated for development (lot 7 & 8).  The two lots were acquired and conserved in 2023 thanks to dedicated fundraising efforts, support from the community, and a grant from the Vermont Housing & Conservation Board.  It’s located at the intersection of Nashville and Stage Rd. and has served as a community space for many years thanks to its small baseball field and larger open field space.  The town is now gathering information to develop a master plan for the area.  Surveys will be accepted until March 31, 2024.

Upcoming Events

Welcome to the Town of Bolton, Vermont


Town of BoltonWelcome to the Bolton, Vermont website. The town of Bolton is located in the western foothills of the Green Mountains, on the eastern edge of the Lake Champlain Valley. The Winooski River bisects the town from east to west, as does Interstate 89, the New England Central Railway and U.S. Route 2.  Chartered in June 1763, Bolton is a small rural municipality that prides itself on many unique aspects: we are a tight-knit community with acres of forested land bisected by recreational trails, majestic ridge lines, rugged rocky outcrops, and valley-bottom cropland, all tucked in between working landscapes and our beloved Green Mountains.
