Timber Line on Averill Mountain
1898 - 1907
The historic image shows a wooden bridge along a rural, dirt road. Stones are piled up under the bridge and electric lines run along the road. The landscape is forested. There is a mountain with exposed rock outcrop above the road. A caption on the side of the image reads, "As Averill Mountain Drive near Lakeside Inn. Showing Timber Line on Averill Mountain." Esther Munroe Swift writs on 2006-2-4: This image gives a wonderful view of the still wild area in Averill, which ranks as one of the least populated towns in Vermont. It was granted by New Hampshire\'s Benning Wentworth in 1762 to a group of men from Connecticut, one of whom was Samuel Averill, for whom the town was named. Included in the grant were also Brunswick, Ferdinand, Wenlock (which was later divided into Brighton & Ferdinand) and Maidstone.. later they were granted Lewis and Lemington. According to the census records Averill never had any residents until 1830, when there was one man. It reached its peak in population in 1880 when there were 48 people. In more recent years the area has been popular with fishermen and climbers, and for many years a summer camp was run by the Quimby family. Robert Couture writes on 2007-01-11 that Averill Mountain is today well forested. The terrain on this side of the mountain which is the south side, is quite rocky and rather steep. The north side of the mountain has a gentle slope and the summit is less than a mile south of the Canadian border. The main highway shown is Vermont Route 114 going east and west. The motorcycle shown is traveling right and to the east,. The road seem coming from the right is he Little Averill road which comes from Little Averill Lake then connects to the East Branch road and eventually joins Vermont Route 105 in Bloomfield, Vermont near the Connecticut river valley. The bridge as seen in the original image was spanning Averill Creek. This is now serviced by a modern bridge of either concrete of metal culvert and is located between the mort cycle and little Averill Road.
