History

The 2007 Fed Cup Semifinals between the United States team (coached by Zina Garrison) and Russia took place in Stowe on hard courts in July. Vania King, Lisa Raymond, Meilen Tu and Venus Williams made up the team for the U.S. A 4100 capacity stadium was built at Topnotch Resort, a high-end resort located in Stowe.[3]

Geography

According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 72.7 square miles (188.4 km2), of which, 72.7 square miles (188.2 km2) of it is land and 0.1 square miles (0.2 km2) of it (0.10%) is water. By area, it is the second-largest town in the state of Vermont (after Chittenden in Rutland County).

Stowe lies in a broad, fertile valley between Mt. Mansfield and other peaks of the Green Mountains on the west, and the Worcester Range or "Hogback" Mountains on the east. The Waterbury River (or Little River, as it is presently known) with its main East and West branches and various tributaries, flows southward and, above Waterbury Center, empties into the large reservoir created by the flood control dam. From there the "Little River" flows southward and eventually empties into the westward flowing Winooski River west of the Village of Waterbury.
