This watershed along the upper reaches of the Connecticut River that divides New Hampshire’s granite from Vermont’s Green Mountains inspires great minds and great passion. From the earliest Abenaki settlements, this is a valley that draws people to stop and appreciate the beauty and abundance of the land. St. Johnsbury owes its most visible heritage to the Fairbanks family, specifically the brothers Thaddeus and Erastus who arrived in this valley in the early 1800’s with little more than a wagon and innovative ideas. The brothers patented and produced the platform scale, bridging the agricultural economy with the needs of a nascent industrial commercial system. Their company – Fairbanks Scales – succeeded beyond anyone’s expectations, reaching markets around the world. In the process, St. Johnsbury became one of the most prosperous towns in the Northeast.

The Fairbanks family founded institutions dedicated to education and the arts for the people of St. Johnsbury. Today, cultural institutions – the St. Johnsbury Academy, St. Johnsbury Athenaeum, Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium, and Catamount Arts – offer an astonishing variety of world-class programs and events for audiences of all ages. St. Johnsbury’s Victorian roots remain strong, and new dimensions of the community add vitality and variety. A regional hospital, the largest weekly farmers’ market in the area, and striking art galleries enrich everyday life. All this happens in a community with more bridges than traffic lights, more spires than chain stores and more surprises than you expect!

When you need a tow, odds are pretty good that you’re not in a great place, both physically and emotionally. Unless you happen to be hauling your classic car to your local auto shop for work you’ve been planning on, towing services are generally needed for cases of emergency. Which means that, if you’re hunting for a local towing service, you need service quickly, and you need help from someone you can trust—you don’t want just anyone showing up to help you in the middle of nowhere!

At B&B Towing and Recovery, we pride ourselves on offering the trustworthy towing and roadside assistance you need any time of the day or night. With our Fast Service & Fair Pricing Guarantee, you can trust that we’ll be there to get to you quickly and provide service at a fair price—unlike so many of those nationally-operated fleets. B&B Towing and Recovery is locally based, and we have a fleet of 24 trucks available. We even have the specialized equipment to perform underwater recoveries, motorcycle towing, and towing for semi-trailers and other oversized vehicles. Because our fleet is so big, and we’re all locally based in Vermont and New Hampshire, we even perform roadside assistance services quickly. We can bring you fuel, jumpstart your car, or help you change a tire—and we’re AAA™ approved, so you can get your services covered, if you’re a member! If you need help with your vehicle, whether that means a tow, roadside assistance, or even mobile auto repairs, you can call B&B Towing and Recovery any time!
