The most visible new Vermonters were the "hippies," a term applied in a derogatory way by some to the growing number of young people, often pictured as men with long hair and beards and women with long hair, long skirts or jeans and peasant shirts, usually barefoot.

By the mid-1970s, that look became a fashion statement as much as an indication of one's political views.

Many of those communes epitomized the "back-to-the-land" narrative, and focused on subsistence farming.

Some were religious retreats, and some were known for their writing, music and craftsmanship.

Unfortunately, these communes grabbed the headlines when tragedy struck, and they became poster children for what everyone feared would happen to Vermont.

If we refer to known demographic changes, and even allow for more generous estimations, these communards probably represented less than 10 percent of Vermont's population increase, or just a few thousand people, and it's important to consider that some communards were native Vermonters.

Deane Davis received so many letters expressing concern and newspapers throughout the state continued to focus on that number that he finally had to issue a press release trying to allay those fears."It has become apparent that speculation about the so-called 'Hippie influx' this summer is causing mounting concern around the state," he began, and concluded that "Like most people, the bulk of the young transients go about their business in a self-sufficient, peaceful manner, although their habits and appearance may not be to our taste."Some of the newcomers lived in communes that sprouted up all over the state.
