Missionary work started shortly after the Church was organized in 1830. The Eastern States Mission, the Church's 2nd mission (behind the British Mission), was established on May 6, 1839, but discontinued in April 1850. The Eastern States Mission was re-established in January 1893. On June 20, 1974, it was renamed the New York New York Mission. The Vermont Morristown Mission was organized from the New York New York Mission on July 1, 1987. The Vermont Cherry Hill was organized in 1995 then discontinued in 2010 and made up portions of the Vermont Morristown and the Pennsylvania Philadelphia Missions. As of June 2021, the entire state was covered either by the Morristown or Philadelphia Missions.[6]


With exception of the Bennington Branch in southern Vermont, the state is in the Boston Massachusetts Temple District. The Bennington Branch is in the Hartford Connecticut Temple District.
