Green Mountains stretch east of Burlington. The city has a population of 42,000. Burlington was named after the Burling family, who first mastered the surrounding lands. The year of foundation of the settlement is considered to be 1763, however, its active settlement began only ten years later, when a shipyard and a sawmill started working there. In the event of a British attack, there was a garrison in the city. When the Anglo-American War of 1812-1814 broke out, the British fleet was fired from Burlington.
