  A Brief History of Corinth

     The little village of Corinth lies in the central part of Orange County, bounded northerly by the rolling hills of Orange, Topsham and Newbury, easterly by Bradford and West Fairlee, Vershire on the south, Washington on the west. 

     It was first chartered by New Hampshire, February 4, 1764, to Col. John Taplin and others, and a confirmatory grant was afterwards procured from New York, by Henry Moore and others, February 2, 1772. It contains an area of 23,040 acres. 

     The first family to settle in the town was the Ezekiel Colby family in 1777, followed by several other families settling there in 1780 at which time the town was organized. 

     Corinth township is comprised of the following: West Corinth Village - about 1 1/2 miles from the west and 2 3/4 miles from the south line of town; East Corinth Village - in the northeastern part of the township, extending to the Topsham line; Corinth Village - about 1 mile south of the center of the town (also known as Cookeville); Corinth Center, a hamlet 3/4 mile east of Corinth Corinth Corners, a hamlet in the southwestern corner of the town.
