History

History

history arkansas

The early settlement of Burlington was delayed by the Revolutionary War, and it was only in 1785 that it became organized. Over the years, the town's position on Lake Champlain helped it become a port of entry and center for trade, particularly after completion of the three canals - the Champlain in 1823, the Erie in 1825 and the Chambly in 1843. Incorporated as a city in 1865, Burlington became a hub for lumber and manufacturing. A few years later In 1870, the waterfront was extended by construction of the Pine Street Barge Canal. Fast forward to today, the city has set in place an extensive waterfront beautification plan which includes more housing, the creation of public parks, a bike path and a community boathouse.
