Long Description:
Enosburgh (with an "h") is one of several towns granted in 1780 as a means of raising money to pay for Vermont's participation in the Revolutionary War. It was later named for General Roger Enos, who had been commander of all Vermont forces during that war.

While a Connecticut resident, Enos served with colonial troops, rising to the rank of Colonel of the Second Connecticut Regiment. Commanding the rear guard under Benedict Arnold in the 1775 expedition to Quebec, Enos turned back with his troops (most of whom were ill) and was accused of cowardice and desertion, but eventually acquitted. Leaving Continental service, he moved to Vermont, where he came to be considered second to none in military matters, gaining the high esteem of the populace.

Enosburg (without the "h") Falls is the village so named because of the natural falls in the Missisquoi River, providing for a place to put mills in the early days (one of the first steps in settling an area). This is one of those places in Vermont in which a village is better known than the town in which it is located.

The dairy festival is essentially a small fair, except held at the beginning of the summer (first weekend in June), with a parade (one of the biggest in Vermont), rides, games, merchants, fair food, etc., etc., and a unique lottery.

A cow is put into a fenced-off area of Main Street which has numbered squares painted on the pavement. Whatever number she leaves a plop on is the winner.

This sign is seen entering the village from the north on Route 105. There is another identical sign entering from the west, also on Route 105.
