Governor Israel Smith was buried at the West Street
Cemetery. Smith served in the state legislature
and as a delegate to the Vermont Constitutional
Convention, which ratified the US Constitution.
When Vermont became a state in 1791, he was
elected for the first time to Congress. Smith was
named Chief Judge of the Vermont Supreme Court
in 1797. In 1803, he served in the US Senate, serving until he was elected Vermont's 4th governor
in 1807. He said at his inaugural "Our duty as
legislators is to provide wholesome laws for the
promotion of virtue, happiness, and prosperity
among the people over whom the laws are to
operate. The end of all government is to teach
each individual of the community the necessity
of self-government."
