Our town is located in central Vermont along the beautiful Winooski River, scenic Vermont Route 100 and the flanks of Camels Hump, Vermont's iconic mountain peak. It is a place of hiking, hunting, backcountry skiing, bicycling, trout fishing and snow—plenty of that. Mount Mansfield, Vermont's tallest peak, is about twelve miles northeast. Duxbury is the home of Crossett Brook Middle School and Harwood Union High School. The population of Duxbury is approximately 1,300.
