About Rutland County
The greater-Rutland region is in the heart of the Killington Valley, where world-class skiing and riding, clear-water lakes and streams, local arts, low-cost housing and high-quality education create a wonderful quality of life. From our four local colleges to great local public and private schools, to the Paramount Theatre, Carving Studio and Sculpture Center, and a wide variety of arts and culture opportunities, there’s something for everyone.
Fishing, biking – mountain or road – hiking, Rutland County has it all, with some of the cleanest air, water and communities you’ll find anywhere. Rutland is in the heart of Vermont, which has the lowest crime rate in the country, and a sense of community you won’t find anywhere else.
Combine our natural environment with a community that has made Rutland the Solar Capital of New England, set and holds the national record for blood donations (2,350 pints in one day!) and has the most active young professional organization in the state, and you have a recipe for good living.
