"The soil of North Hero is of an excellent quality, and produces grains of all kinds in abundance.  It has no streams of any consequence, and no mills or mill privileges . . . This is the shire town of Grand Isle County.  The settlement of this township was commenced in 1783, by Enos and Solomon Wood, the former from Bennington, in this State, and the latter from Norwich, Ct.  The British erected a block house here, at a place called Dutchman's Point, which was garrisoned, and not given up till 1796.  The town was organized in 1789."
