West Glover is a tiny farming community in Orleans County, in the north-east corner of Vermont, near U.S. Interstate 91. It lies squarely in the middle of the Northeast Kingdom, an area of Vermont between the Green Mountains and the Connecticut River that is known for spectacularly beautiful scenery, abundant natural resources, and the preservation of traditional landscapes and lifestyles. West Glover is named for Brigadier General John Glover, who served in the American Revolutionary War and was an early proprietor of the town. It is primarily a recreational area, and boasts numerous lakes, ponds, and streams, and unlimited recreational opportunities. West Glover is known for having a record high percentage of second home ownership. It has been home to several notable individuals, including Emory A. Hebarb, a member of the Vermont House of Representatives from 1961 to 1977, and Vermont State Treasurer from 1977 to 1989; and Peter Schumann, founder and director of The Bread and Puppet Theater, a politically radical puppet theater active since the 1960's.
