About

The award-winning Vermont Standard is Windsor County’s largest, and the state of Vermont’s oldest,
weekly newspaper. It serves the towns of Woodstock, Barnard, Bridgewater, Hartland, Killington,
Plymouth, Pomfret, Reading, Quechee, and West Windsor.

Founded in 1853, the paper was originally conceived as The Vermont Temperance Standard, an anti-
alcohol publication. It ultimately transitioned into the paper of record for the Woodstock region,
outperforming and outliving 13 other publications that existed during the latter half of the 19th century.
Today the Vermont Standard publishes robust print and digital editions, as well as print and digital
specialty publications, that consist nearly entirely of locally-produced news, information, photography and
advertising. It is widely regarded as one of New England’s best small-market weeklies – in fact, it has
been named “Newspaper of the Year” by the New England Newspaper & Press Association several times
recently.

Throughout its 165-year history, the Standard has published a paper each and every week. Not even the
burning of the newspaper’s offices in 1867 (and again in 2018), a flood in 1973, which destroyed the
entire pre-press and press operation, or even Tropical Storm Irene, which washed the newspaper’s
building into the raging river in August 2011, could prevent the Standard from arriving on newsstands
and in subscribers’ mailboxes. Beyond any awards or recognition, it’s that type of commitment to serving
the residents of its communities, no matter what it takes, that truly distinguishes the Vermont Standard.
