Just ask Mendon. It has the record for name changes.
Mendon, Vermont, in Rutland County, has the record for changing its name says The Rutland Herald. Mendon is the town’s third name. The town was chartered by the state in 1781 as Medway. Later on, Jonathan Parker bought a 3,000 acre tract known today as Parker’s Gore. Medway became known as Parkertown when the Gore and Medway merged in 1804. Parker’s influence held sway until 1927 when the state changed the name one last time to Mendon. Now, tell me, could your day have gone on without knowing that?
