It is part of the Burlington-South Burlington, VT Metropolitan Statistical Area. It is bordered by Burlington and Colchester. It is the most ethnically diverse city in Vermont, and even considered the most diverse city of northern New England, comprising the states of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.GeographyAccording to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 1.5 square miles (3.9 km2), of which 1.4 square miles (3.7 km2) is land and 0.1 square mile (0.2 km2) (5.30%) is water.EtymologyThe word "winooski" comes from the language of the Abenaki tribe, and means "this is where the wild onions grow". Winooski's southern border is formed by the Winooski River, which is alternatively known as the Onion River.HistoryPre-columbianFive thousand years ago a single family of paleolithic native Americans came to what is now the city. The prehistoric campground for this transient group is one of Vermont's significant archaeological sites. Other native people came to Winooski in the years that followed.ColonialSituated on a main travel route, Winooski most likely started out as a trading city. With a set of waterfalls to assist the growth of industry, it soon became a center for wool processing.
