About Us

Colchester, with its shopping village of Downsville and including the hamlets of Cooks Falls, Horton, Shinhopple and Corbett, provides a wide variety of services for community residents, travelers and visitors.

These services come with the traditional warm, friendly helpfulness of our small mountain community. Many of them have served generations and are deeply rooted in our hills and valleys. They are here because they like it here-and they want you to like it too.

You can find out more about the history (and great old photos!) of the Town of Colchester through the Colchester Historical Society, click here for their website and to find out more information.

Stay informed by subscribing to the website by email and get updates on local town notices, opinions and events through the Supervisor’s Corner.
