Canoeing at Pinecroft Camps, "Silver Lake" (Lake Carmi)

Title:
Canoeing at Pinecroft Camps, "Silver Lake" (Lake Carmi)
Town:
Franklin
County:
Franklin
State:
Vermont
Date:
1898 - 1907
Description:
The historic image shows a group of people gathered along Lake Carmi's cobble shoreline. One man stands in a canoe to with an American flag. There are also two buildings with porches along the lake. The word, "Pinecroft" is visible on the roof of one of the buildings. It looks like summer. Please see other related images of the Pinecroft Camps in this database. Also search for Silver Lake, Franklin Pond and Lake Carmi. Esther Munroe Swift writes on 2005-1-26: This body of water has had many names: Initially it was probably called Huntsburg Pond before the town's name was changed from Huntsburg to Franklin. Historian Zadock Thompson wrote, "The township is injured very much by a large pond, which lies near the centre". However, times change and what was first considered a liability for farming became a valuable vacation attraction. By the end of the 19th century it was being called Silver Lake (one of many in the state). In 1910 the name was officially changed by the legislature to Lake Carmi... but no one knows why that name was chosen.
