West Haven, VT

West Haven has the second lowest population in the region, although they may have more cows than people, so there’s a win. West Haven juts into New York state like a hook, making it the most recognizable municipality on a map of Vermont.  It’s on the northern end of the slate belt and but is better known for the snakes that live around the slate. Another thing West Haven is known for the Devils Bowls Speedway, which attracts fans near and far for some fast fun.
