About Montpelier

Montpelier has the distinction of being the smallest state capital in the United States, with a population of just over 8,000 people.  It's a small town with big city amenities - a lively arts and music scene, great restaurants (largely due to the presence of the New England Culinary Institute), excellent schools, and an active community life - there are lots of opportunities to participate in local government, recreation, the faith and wisdom communities, and healthy lifestyles.
