A first settlement was built along the North Branch of the Winooski River in 1787, it was named after the city of Montpellier in Southern France. In 1791, when Vermont became a state, Montpelier was a village of hardly 120 souls. But 15 years later the town's population grew already to 1200 citizens. Because of its central location within Vermont, Montpelier was selected the capital in 1805.
