The historic image shows a winter scene of a farm in front of a mountain. Snow covers the landscape. A snow fence runs across the foreground of the image. The farmhouse is attached to a barn/garage in classic New England style. There is a very large barn, two silos, a chicken coop, and three other farm buildings to the left of the house. There are open fields around the farm. The landscape is forested on the hills and mountains in the background of the image.

Esther Munroe Swift writes on 2007-02-03: I think this view shows Mount Cobb & Chase Mountain. which are the only two named peaks in the town, which has several others. The photo was taken from the highway. Note the snow fence which indicates that strong winds blow through the valley. Eleanore Hilferty writes on 2009-04-21: It is incorrectly identified as being in Moretown. It is in Waitsfield and is still a farm. I received this email from Kathi Hartshorn Orr: "Actually, I can identify this farm quite well! I grew up there! It was
my family's farm. It is on Route 100 in Waitsfield. It was the
Hartshorn's Farm in the 60s. The Hartshorn's Farm Stand is right beside it now and Vermont Yak farm is in the old farm buidings currently."
Note: the image was originally identified as being in Moretown and has since been changed to Waitsfield.

That is the Worcester Range behind the farm--the highest point being Hunger Mountain.
