Built in 1795, the first Vassalborough Town House was moved to this site on land owned by John Dutton, near the center of town, ca 1828. It was built by James Brackett for the sum of one hundred twenty one pounds, using plans made by Jonathan Fairfield. …The building was burned by an arsonist in 1979, leaving only echoes of the voices who managed the Town of Vassalborough, the laughter and music of the Men’s Club, and the camaraderie of the Snowmobile Club. The plaque is on the corner of Cross Hill Road and Quaker Lane.
