WHO ARE WE?

Barre is a uniquely energetic community with vision, purpose and unity. We’re on a mission to the future, and we’d love for you to join us.

Barre is one of Vermont’s most cosmopolitan cities surrounded by rolling hills, bucolic farms and wilderness that attract tourists to high quality cultural, entertainment, and outdoor recreational experiences.  The Granite Capitol of the World is home to unique museums, diverse restaurants, vibrant visual and performing arts, and one of the Top Ten mountain biking trail systems in New England.

Barre has approximately 17,000 residents and offers employment at livable wages, a housing stock that attracts and serves all income levels, and

access to excellent schools and health care services. It’s a friendly, affordable place to live with diverse, industrious residents who have an above average education level.

As a result of recent public and private investment, central location, affordable housing, recreation and cultural attractions, the Barre Area, comprised of the City of Barre and the surrounding Town of Barre, is recognized as an upcoming micropolitan area. It’s a wonderful place to start or expand your business.
