Welcome the the Sharon Community Website

We hope you enjoy this Town website, your virtual introduction to Sharon’s resources, events, documents and organizations.

Sharon is a great place to live and a wonderful place to visit. Located beside the scenic White River with its excellent fishing holes and rapids, this active small community with a population just under 1400 people offers a restaurant, two general stores with fuel, a post office, and a public library with free 24-hour high-speed WiFi. Sharon is also home to the Sharon Academy, Sharon Congregational Church, Joseph Smith Birthplace Memorial, the Vermont Independent School of the Arts, and the classic Camp Downer summer camp. Local geography features the ridgetops and steep valleys along the White River tributary brooks, and close to two thousand acres of prime wildlife habitat in conservation set-asides and State Forest. The White River attracts anglers from across New England and offers opportunities for a refreshing summer run through the current or a dip in one of the quiet river pools. The town is an easy commute to western New Hampshire or central Vermont, and is conveniently accessed via Exit 2 on Interstate 89 and State Routes 14 or 132.

Municipal offices are housed in the Historic Town Hall, built in the 1850s. Office hours are Monday thru Thursday from 7:30am. to 4:30pm.  Our friendly staff and elected officials welcome your visit or inquiries.
