Located along Rt 131 Cavendish is comprised of two villages Cavendish and Proctorsville. More than 50% of current land owners are non residents. With a 2000 population of 1,470 people Cavendish was created by New Hampshire Governor Benning Wentworth when he granted the land of Cavendish to sixty-six proprietors in 1761.

As the population expanded, the main settlement moved to the valley along the Black River. Abundant water power for grist and saw mills developed the dual villages of Proctorsville and Cavendish. The first recorded town meeting was held in 1782; locally controlled town government continues to this day.

By 1849, Cavendish was served by the Rutland Railroad providing access to a wider world with freight and passenger service. Currently Vermont Railway uses the rail line for daily freight service and foliage excursion trips.

With a history of farming and woolen mills Cavendish, is a mix of residential and vacation home owners. Major businesses include Mack Molding making plastic cases and Black River Produce providing wholesale and retail produce and fish.
Town Offices are located on the Green in Cavendish. Phone 1+802-226.7291
