By 1783, a second group of settlers arrived at Shelburne. The following year Shelburne's population was over 10,000, making Shelburne one of the largest towns in North America. Shelburne's rapid growth would decrease and ultimately settle to a small fishing town. Today, Shelburne, despite its low population, is still the capital of its county of the same name.
