SHREWSBURY is located south of Rutland City with a population of about 1,200 townsfolk.
Shrewsbury was the home of the late U.S. Senator Jim Jeffords. In 1986/87, the town received worldwide attention from the media, when a moose spent 76 days unsuccessfully courting a local farmer’s cow. A book, A Moose for Jessica was written about the story.
The town offers a car dealership, post office, library and a restaurant.
