About Shelburne Bay
People have been living on the shores of Shelburne Bay for centuries. The long arm of Shelburne Point provides shelter from strong winds blowing from the south and west. The bay’s calm surface was an important factor when the 120-mile Lake Champlain was used as a “water highway,” before the advent of the railroad, automobile and airplane. Early European settlers found evidence of a Native settlement–a cleared field, flints and arrowheads–at the mouth of the LaPlatte River, across from the boat launch area. Today you can discover how natural and human processes have made Shelburne Bay one of the most unique environments in the Champlain Basin.
