As described by the Lamoille Region Chamber of Commerce, Cambridge is a community divided into many sections, each with a varied lifestyle and many different occupations and businesses.
In its early days, sheep were vast (7,000 is the noted number), there was a woolen mill, gristmill, several sawmills, and cabinet shops. Today, Cambridge is a thriving town with its largest industry being the ski industry… Smuggler’s Notch ski area.
Cambridge is the actual town and consists of about 3,500 year-round residents, including Jeffersonville. While Smuggler’s Notch is certainly a draw to bring people to Cambridge, there are many reasons people choose to make it their year-round home. Take a stroll through Cambridge with its country store and stately homes lining the roads, churches, and of course, the pizza shop. Jeffersonville is at the base of Route 108, (the road to Smuggler’s Notch). This village offers several shops, an art gallery, restaurants (its own pizza shop as well), banks, inns and The Cambridge Elementary school a K-6 school.
Take a quick peek at Cambridge’s Rotary website to get an idea of the community and the kinds of things that pulls everyone out of their homes for gatherings with their neighbors and friends (These outings include an all-out Bunco night (a roll-of-the-dice game that keeps you moving all night long), Pie for Breakfast Day, the famous 5K Fun Run (because who wouldn’t think that was fun?) The Rail Trail bike-a-thon, and of course the annual Winterfest preceded by the annual ski ride and winter sports sale.
Cambridge is a blend of old and new, with something to delight everyone. Check out some of these Cambridge homes and promise to come to visit us sometime soon!
