Vermont's 1st congressional district

Vermont's 1st congressional district is an obsolete district. Vermont currently has one representative to the United States House of Representatives, elected state-wide At-large. Until 1933, however, the state used to have multiple seats spread out into geographic districts. During that time, the first district elected its own representative.
