About Windham County
It’s no secret that southern Vermont is a great vacation destination — and Windham County, anchored by the town of Brattleboro (pop. 12,184), is living proof. If you enjoy beautiful mountain vistas and skiing, quaint villages and farms, weathered barns and covered bridges, you won’t be disappointed. Local food, arts and culture, and small-town life bring back seasonal visitors and homeowners year after year. The area also has arts, educational and recreational offerings that are world class.
Alongside the scenery and hospitality is another Vermont where people enjoy this quality of life year-round while building careers. From manufacturing to family farms, medical centers to hospitality, traditional banks to tech-based startups, Southern Vermont’s growing employers need talented people to join their teams — in a place that’s less than three hours from Boston and less than four hours from New York City, making day trips to these areas for business or pleasure not just a possibility but an asset.
The Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation (BDCC) is a private, nonprofit economic development organization dedicated to creating and retaining a flourishing business community that supports vibrant fiscal activity and improves the quality of life of all its residents. Its goal is to assist startup companies, growing companies, and global businesses alike, in order to support continued success stories in our region.
