Hyde Park Village and Town
History and Green River Reservoir define Hyde Park. The tree-lined historic Main Street and Village with the Governor’s Mansion and Hyde Park Opera House to the majestic mountain views of nearby Mount Mansfield and Smugglers’ Notch. The pristine 653-acre Green River Reservoir State Park with its 19 miles of undeveloped shoreline. There is a special feeling in Hyde Park.
The Town and Village of Hyde Park welcome all visitors. People enjoy the vibrant community nestled along the banks of the beautiful Lamoille River, surrounded by Vermont’s lush Green Mountains. Hyde Park has welcomed visitors and businesses for more than two hundred years! It was once the destination of the wealthy from New York and Boston who traveled via train to spend their summers in the country.
