Maple Corner, Vermont facts for kids
The village is situated on the town line between Calais to the north and East Montpelier to the south. There is no true boundary to define the village, and as such there is great debate as to what constitutes residence. This is, however, purely theoretical as there is no legal, governmental or commercial status associated with residence.
The village contains the Maple Corner Store and Whammy Bar, and the Calais Post Office, which was originally in Kents' Corner. The south end of Curtis Pond, and the Calais Swimming Area are also within the village district.
The Maple Corner Community Center and the old Maple Corner Schoolhouse are also in the village.
Historically the village has been chiefly populated by two large families, the Fitch's and the Morse's. However, over the last decade two new families, the Lows and the Myers, have out-populated the Fitch's and Morse's, especially since the Lows and the Myers are joined by a marriage of the two families.
Maple Corner gained national notoriety in 2002 & 2003 with the release of The Men of Maple Corner Calendar, featuring more than two dozen men (sans clothing) ranging in age from 18 to 82. Between the two years, more than 56,000 calendars were sold.
