Who we are

About us

The site of the Town of Navy in northeastern Vermont, on the lands of the Abenaki people, was granted to Commodore Abraham Whipple in 1780 to honor his heroic defense of the city Charleston, South Carolina in the Revolutionary War. Navy was first settled by Abner Allyn in 1806 and was renamed Charleston in 1825. The earliest settlers were hearty pioneers who cleared dense forests to make their farms and homes. This same reliance on the land, love of its natural beauty, and spirit of independence and self-reliance still characterizes the people of Charleston today.
