Title:
Access Road To Bolton Ski Area
Town:
Bolton
County:
Chittenden
State:
Vermont
Date:
2009
Description:
This picture was taken in the winter of 2009 at the beginning of the Bolton Access Road, looking out at Route 2 and Interstate 89. One of the mountains in the back round is Camels Hump. As you see there have been many developments in the past 43 years. For example, the access road was once an old logging road and now itís paved and is a road up to the ski resort. An example of a change is that the road back then was dirt and today its paved. Another example of the change is there is a lot of houses now and in the old picture thereís not one to be seen. From the prospective of the new picture it looks like there are more trees now than in the past. In the past Edwin Bryant owned the road and the mountain, he owned about 10,000 Acers. Then when Edwin died in 1945 the land was sold to the Giffith lumber company in Jonesville. And within the twenty years they owned the 10,000 acers they cut down trees and used them for lumber. Then it was in the hands of the DesLaurier Family who owned the road and turned it into the access road in 1965 and now the road is well populated and has lots of advancements.
