Brief History[edit | edit source]

Underhill was chartered on June 8, 1763. It is obvious in a number of the New Hampshire Grants that neither Benning Wentworth nor the grantees knew anything of the terrain with which they were dealing. The town of Mansfield was granted on the same day as Underhill, nobody having a clue that the town was bisected by the state's highest mountain. In 1839 the Legislature annexed the western section of Mansfield to Underhill, forming the present day town (it was impossible to get from one side of Mansfield town to the other). Despite the objections of residents of the eastern portion of Mansfield, who wanted to remain a separate civil entity, the Legislature saw fit to blend them with Stowe.  [1]   [2]
