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.
