"The Shires of Vermont"

The geographic designation of the southwest corner of Vermont may be Bennington County, but in recent years residents and visitors have branded this beautiful region nestled between the Taconic and Green Mountains as The Shires of Vermont. It has the unusual distinction of having two shire towns, historically referred to as "county seats." Anchored by Bennington (the South Shire) and Manchester (the North Shire), it is a collective of 15 quintessential Vermont towns and villages connected by a scenic ribbon of highway known as Historic Route 7A. Surrounded by mountains and enriched by the waters of the famous Battenkill River that runs through the valley, The Shires has historically been a popular year-round destination for those seeking the authentic Vermont experience. And it is within a 4-hour drive from New York City, Hartford, Boston, Northern New Jersey, and Canada.
