The Village of Lyndonville, located within the Town of Lyndon, was incorporated by an act of the legislature dated December 24, 1880. Within the Village, Bandstand Park (formerly known as “Lyndonville Park”), stands a fountain, which was purchased in New York in 1885. As one of the finest village greens in Vermont, the park hosts many events including weekly band concerts in the summer, Farmer’s Market on Fridays, craft fairs, community events, and everyday year-round enjoyment.
