Property History- Asa Green

Asa Green was born in Leicester Massachusetts on July 27, 1761, the son of Beniamin and Lucy (Marston) Green. He enlisted in 1778 and marched to Rhode Island where he was stationed at Butts Hill. In 1780, he was with the Continental Army at West Point and was present at the execution of Major Andre. In 1783 Beniamin Green moved his family to Woodstock. Asa Green married Achsa Sanderson and they came to Bridgewater and settled on Bridgewater Hill. Achsa Sanderson died in 1814, age 51, "in full belief of the Christian religion”. His second wife Lois died June 15, 1830, at age 65, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on a journey from Vermont to Kentucky. He married a third time on September 15, 1830, in Plymouth Phebe Hadle of Plymouth. In August 1832, he applied for a pension and stated that although he knew of "no person who can testify to his service", he had been for many years a Preacher and well-known by most of the inhabitants in this county. Asa Green died in Plymouth on September 16, 1842. He was buried in Brid Hill Cemetery with two of his three wives. On his gravestone, he is Deacon Asa Green. The Descendants of Thomas Green by Samuel S. Green says of Asa, "He was a Baptist preacher; a good man.”

Bridgewater, Vermont

Settled in 1779, Bridgewater sits quietly on the Ottauquechee River which flows from east to west through the town. Along the river runs Route 4 which connects Bridgwater to Woodstock and White River Junction to the east and Killington and Rutland to the west. The Appalachian Trail runs along the northern border. From the birthplace of the renowned naturalist Zadock Thompson—you’ll be surrounded by snowy peaks, artisan workshops, and a bustling community right outside your front door.

Vermont and much of the upper northeast are known for their skiing and lodging, and Bridgewater is no exception. The nearby town of Killington has some of the largest ski areas of the Eastern United States, replete with lush resorts and gorgeous scenery. Take a trip down the slopes or cruise around on a snowmobile as you delight in this icy winter paradise.

If you’re not a fan of winter sports, Bridgewater, VT, offers some of the most unique artisan workshops in the region. Charles Shackleton provides Vermont with some of the best, most beautiful handmade furniture around. Other artists, including Shackleton Thomas, offer one-of-a-kind ceramics, pottery, and other décor pieces to make your new house in VT feel like home.

Furthermore, Bridgewater’s Ramunto’s Brick & Brew Pizza is a mainstay here, catching the ski crowd and locals day and night. The Bridgewater Mill Mall, at the heart of the town, is another noteworthy site as the 19th-century structure still bustles with business.
