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.

ANNUAL HOLIDAY BAZAR
The 47th Annual Holiday Bazaar of the Union Church of Proctor will be held on Saturday, November 5th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Union Church Parish House in the center of Proctor, Vermont. Get a start on your holiday shopping with the fabulous selection of handcrafted gifts, Christmas ornaments and holiday items that you’ve come to expect from the Union Church crafters over the last 47 years; and help us raise important funds to support our work in the community at the same time!!
You’ll find two full floors of treasures to choose from, including great gift items in our pink pachyderm gift boutique. Deck your halls with unique decorated furniture we’ve created; then deck yourself out from the dazzling array of contemporary and vintage pieces to be found in our expanded jewelry department.
Next, treat yourself and your family with some of the delectable baked treats, jams, and pickles that you’ll find in our food sale; and search for treasures in the expanse of antiques, collectibles, and white elephants that we’ve collected for your shopping pleasure! There’s nothing like the thrill of finding that certain something for next to nothing, especially during our midday white elephant bag sale! And when you are all done shopping, sit right down and enjoy a luncheon of delicious soups, sandwiches and desserts served to you at your table by our junior wait staff.
All proceeds from the Bazaar support the Union Church of Proctor and it's work in the community. Our only major fundraiser, this annual event is successful because of the dedication of church members and friends who work all year long to create the wonderful items for sale AND the generous support of our customers who line up year after year for the first rush in the doors.
THANK YOU all for your continued support! See you on November 5th at the 47th Annual Bazaar at the Union Church Parish located at 5 Church Street, Proctor, VT. All levels are handicapped accessible from the rear parking lot entrance.

The Town is preparing for a complete town-wide reappraisal for the 2017 Grand List. The Town has hired APPRAISAL RESOURCE GROUP, INC. to assist the Town Assessor in completing this Reappraisal Project. The first phase of the Project includes the inspection of all residential and commercial real estate. The objective of this part of the process is to verify and update the Town’s assessment records to current standards for entry into a state-of-the-art appraisal software system.
Project staff members are canvassing Town properties. Staff members are required by State of Vermont guidelines to inspect the exterior and interior of all structures. The inspection process is done on a neighborhood by neighborhood basis. Property owners will be notified by mail when the staff members will be working in their area of Town. The staff will be collecting data on rooms, bathrooms, basements, attics, porches, garages, etc. They are not interested in the decor or housekeeping. The staff members or data collectors will be measuring exterior dimensions of all buildings and collecting construction data.
Also, the data collectors will be taking color digital photos of the exteriors of all dwellings. The digital images will be installed on the Town’s computer system as part of the real estate property records.
If no one is available when they visit a home, the data collectors will verify all the exterior information and will return at another time to view the interior of the house.
The last town-wide reappraisal was done in 2007. If anyone has any questions they can call the Assessor's Office in the Town Office at 802 459-3333 Ext. 12. The Project is being run out of that office. The Assessor's Office will be updating the public as the Project progresses. The reappraisal firm will be scheduling informational public meetings as the Project moves ahead. The Project is scheduled for completion for the April 1, 2017 Grand List.
