Panoramic Map of Bellows Falls, VT.  Windham County.  Published by Burleigh Lithograpers, 1866.

Today Bellows Falls is a village within the township of Rockingham. It has become a popular destination for tourists who enjoy the fine examples of Victorian architecture that remain as evidence of its wealth as a successful mill town. Bellows Falls became a major mill town after the first paper mill was built in 1802. 

The Abenaki tribe inhabited the area for thousands of years, fishing the falls on the Connecticut River. The first European settlement was established in 1753, when English colonists gave the place the name Great Falls. The village was later named after Colonel Benjamin Bellows, a local landowner. The first bridge crossing the Connecticut River was built by Colonel Enoch Hale in 1785.
