Some Area Info: Coventry has a population of approx. 1086 and an area of 27.94 sq. miles and has a great deal of interesting history. It once was a mill town located on the Black River and from being a main stop for the railroad back in the day. A major flood in 1927 almost destroyed the downtown but through it all Coventry survived as a farming community and more.
Coventry has no zoning. Due to the town hosting a landfill; the municipal taxes are uniquely appealing as they are one of the lowest in the state. The Newport International Airport is located in town and has recently expanded and will accommodate small jet aircrafts. Another great feature is the school choice for high school students. Coventry opted not to join the union school district so if you are a resident of the town, your child can be tuitioned out to one of several high schools. There are also scholarships available to local students based on the tax revenues received by the town. A great place to live and a very friendly community.

Fly fish the Black River falls, snowmobile on the VAST trails, kayak the Black and Barton Rivers, paddle to Lake Memphremagog and so much more.
