Franklin County is a mix of lakeshore, rolling farmland, and hilly terrain tucked into the northwest corner of Vermont. Franklin County is bordered by Lake Champlain, the Lamoille River Valley, the Green Mountains, and Quebec, Canada. St. Albans serves as the population and commercial center of the county, while the region boasts many communities that evoke that small town agricultural environment Vermont is famous for.
The county’s economic history has been strongly influenced by its environmental assets, including dairy farming and maple syrup production, and its proximity to Montreal, Quebec. Canadian companies have located their United States operations within many industrial parks within Franklin County. Many new residents have settled here because of the excellent quality of life and access to jobs. The population of Franklin County has increased from 39,980 in 1990 to 49,949 in 2020, or approximately 24%.
