Title:
Brickyard
Town:

County:

State:
Vermont
Date:
1880?
Description:
Back of the photo reads, "Brickyard started in 1872 and closed down in the 1890s" There are men posing as well as a wagon drawn by a two horse team. There are wooden fences in the background and the shed is open-sided with perhaps the brick ovens underneath. There are rows of what might be bricks in the foreground and the excavation from which the clay was gathered in the left back. This looks like summer as the deciduous trees cloaking the hill slopes in the distance are in full leaf. Dana Schlansky (wq1962005) writes about LS02289_000.jpg 2005-1-6: Notice that the roads were not constructed, rather just worn away through the grass from repeated usage. The property around the brickyard has been cleared for work space and transportation. The roof of the work shed is very poorly covered with various planks of wood. Esther Munroe Swift writes on 2007-01-17: Vermont Album: A collection of Early Vermont photographs, with text by the noted Ralph Nading Hill, c.1974 has this same photo. The text says the brickyard was that of Dan G. Spaulding & the clay was from the family farm & was mixed with fine sand from the nearby Ottauquechee River. Taftsville is partly in Woodstock, and overlapped into both Hartford & Hartland. Taftsvile still has a post office... one of the smallest in the state. And a covered bridge there crosses over the Ottauquechee River to River Road which takes one to Route 4 in Woodstock.
