In the 1600s and early 1700's the Vermont Area was claimed both by New Hampshire and New York as the "New Hampshire Grants." In 1791 Vermont became the 14th State, and on November 5, 1792 the legislature split Caledonia County off from Orange County, with the original Shire Town (county seat) at Danville (in 1796). As the county had a large Scottish population, the county was called "Caledonia" after the ancient Roman name for Scotland. The County Shire moved from Danville to Saint Johnsbury in 1856.
