Proctor is uniquely situated along a north-south valley of the Otter Creek, making it one of the most picturesque towns in Rutland County. Our vast marble and sand deposits, the proximity to the “Great Falls” of Otter Creek and the rail lines are among the primary reasons Redfield Proctor, Sr. formed the Vermont Marble Company here in 1880. Six years later, the settlement of Sutherland Falls was recognized as the Town of Proctor by the Vermont State Legislature.
Our legacy as the former center of the global marble industry forms the basis for the cultural experience of Proctor today. We are home to the Fletcher Proctor Memorial Bridge, the Vermont Marble Museum, and the Wilson Castle. Visitors continue to admire our unique marble sidewalks and buildings.
Proctor’s well-regarded local school system, active community groups, and abundant historical, cultural, and recreational opportunities make it a compelling place for our 1,900 residents and for visitors to explore.

3rd Annual Home Run Derby
To help support the PHS Class of 2021
Spring is here and the warmer weather is giving you the urge to be outside in the fresh air to shake off the cabin fever that has been setting in for the past 5 months! This also means baseball season is upon us once again and we have a great event to offer.
Please come down and join us for our 3rd Annual Proctor Home Run Derby to support the PHS Class of 2021; currently the PHS 7th Grade Class. This event will be held at the Proctor Youth League Fields on Sunday, June 26th. Registration will start at 10:00am and our first contestant will step up to the plate at 11:00am. There will be full concessions including snacks, drinks, candy, our famous Long Ball Dogs, and back by popular demand this year will be our colossal Grand Slam Burgers! There will be plenty of fun to be had even if you’re only cheering on the contestants from the sidelines while enjoying some great food and drinks.
This event started as a simple idea 3 years ago to help fund the Boston Trip for this class. It has now grown into a Proctor Community Event and is reaching well beyond to other communities as well. It is our mission to help this class and inevitably we will pass this event and the torch on to another Proctor Class to do the same. Our vision is to see a “20th Annual Home Run Derby”. This event can be more than just a simple fundraiser with the continued support of the class, class families, community and sponsors.
Please join Our Facebook Page for event photos and updates:
Thanks for Your Support,
PHS Class of 2021 and families/Chris Lee-Event Coordinator/Ron Wood-Event Planner
