The Town of Hampton is located in the northeast corner of Washington County, along the banks of the Poultney River. Hampton is an agricultural, rural community, with farms, small lakes, and ponds. With 950 residents, it's a wonderful environment for living in the country and raising your family or to retire to. With larger towns in both New York and Vermont within a short distance, we have the best of both worlds. Hampton is a Right to Farm community.
WINTER WARNING: We would like to remind you that it is illegal to plow snow onto the road from driveways or roads onto town, county or state highways. This not only creates a safety issue, but causes damage to snow plowing equipment which may hit packed snow from driveways on the road. We ask that you please do not plow snow onto the roads.
We do understand that with the amount of snow we have received this year that we all have problems finding a place to push our snow, but safety dictates that we follow the guidelines and the town highway department appreciates it.
We are also evaluating the use of Staso road during the winter. It is hard to safely plow and maintain that road during he winter and it can be a very unsafe road for people to enter and exit.
