Jacksonville, Vermont

Jacksonville was chartered as a village in 1904.

The Jacksonville Aqueduct Company was incorporated in 1860 by George Porter, Norris L. Stetson, Luther Gale, Jr., and Parley Starr "for the purpose of constructing and maintaining an aqueduct to supply the inhabitants of the village of Jacksonville, in the county of Windham, with water for domestic and other purposes."  No evidence has been found that this company built anything.

There is currently no public water supply in the village of Jacksonville.
