Rutland, Vermont area info and history
 
 



Rutland Vermont: Southwest Centrally located, Rutland was the second largest city in Vermont for years until the area outside of Burlington Vermont started to grow faster. Rutland is now the 3rd largest city in Vermont. The Rail Road was a great part of how Rutland was formed.

Rutland is not only an active “Rural City” it is also a great place to live. The population is that of an average American small town.  Rutland  has a Mayor and Board of Alderman.  Rutland  is a county seat of government and therefore is home to Federal, Superior, County, Family and Traffic Courts and there are many legal and professional associations who locate here. The Rutland Regional Medical Center is a main employer in town and as such many doctors, nurses, dentists and complimentary services find Rutland their home. GE  is also a large employer in this area and has produced vanes for use in jet engines for about the last 50 years. The quality of the workforce in Rutland is superb. All US citizens depend upon the skill of these technicians, craftsmen, laborers and employees for the security of the nation with it’s air-force.

Omya is an industry that mines marble and makes calcium carbonate for many of the products we use daily. Omya is not without it’s critics, but the job opportunities it offers are a welcome addition to Rutland’s vast list of fine employers. Vermont Marble is still quarrying marble, much of Manhattan was built from marble produced in these quarries. Rutland State Airport is home to FBO Columbia Air and also offers a commercial Airline (Continental). The airport is an Essential Service Airport run by the State of Vermont.  It offers two runways, 19 and 31 and has even entertained “Airforce 1” on occasion. Rutland also offers a multi modal transit center for busses and transportation conveniently located downtown within walking distance to the Asa Bloomer State Office Building. The Paramount Theater is proud addition to the areas activities. The Rutland State Fair operates Annually typically around the Labor Day weekend.

Rutland is also home to many hospitality services that are necessary for the support of the skiing industry offered at nearby Killington, Pico and Okemo Mountains.
