Welcome to the Town of Shoreham, established in 1761. Shoreham is a thriving lake-shore town lying on the outskirts of the growing communities of Burlington, Middlebury, and Rutland. It is halfway between Montreal, Canada, and Albany, N.Y., on New England’s west coast: the shore of Lake Champlain. Shoreham is primarily an agricultural community of orchards, dairy and niche farms, and numerous commercial endeavors, as well as an increasing number of smaller home-based businesses. Shoreham is also home to the “Fort Ti” Ferry, one of oldest ferries in the US, in continuous operation between Shoreham and Ticonderoga, N.Y., since 1788.
