=== Brief History ===
<span style="line-height: 1.5em;">Wilmington&nbsp;was originally granted on April 29, 1751, and the town was named for Spencer Compton, Earl of Wilmington. The town was not settled within the required five-year period, and was re-granted to an entirely different group on June 17, 1764 and named Draper, in honor of either or both John and Richard Draper, the famous Boston printers.</span>
People who settled there apparently didn't like the name, establishing a practice of using the original name very early on. Vermont place names being a rather casual matter in the early days, no official action was ever taken, and the present name is more a matter of custom and usage rather than law.&nbsp;<span style="line-height: 1.5em;">&nbsp;</span><ref>About Wilmington, VT - Virtual Vermont -</ref><ref>History of the Town of Wilmington, VT</ref><span style="line-height: 1.5em;" />
