Townshend Welcome SignTownshend is located in what is referred to as The West River Valley. The Town is about 17 miles north west of Brattleboro if you are traveling along Vermont Route 30, the main highway through town. Newfane is to the south, Wardsboro and Jamaica to the west, Athens and Brookline to the east, Grafton and a tiny piece of Windham to the north.

Truth be told, many people know of Jamaica and Newfane, the other Towns along Route 30, but never realize they had to pass through Townshend, in between them, to go north. It is suspected that the sharp, almost 90 degree shift on Route 30 by the Town Common keeps eyes focused on the road and not on the scenery.
