- The historic image shows two men on the front porch of a large wooden building with stone foundation. There is a lawn with a small boulder and some patches of snow in the foreground of the image. The handwritten title at the bottom of the photograph reads, "Clark Hunting Lodge, Mt. Tabor, Vt." This postcard was sent October 15, 1908. Esther Munroe Swift writes on 2005-4-20: Although it now has few residents, the town of Mount Tabor has some interesting history. It was granted by Benning Wentworth, Governor of New Hampshire on the 28 of August 1761 and given the name of Harwich honoring a British nobleman, Baron Harwich. By 1803 the Harwich name so often was confused with Hardwick that the townspeople asked to have it re-named Mount Tabor in honor of a Revolutionary War Veteran, Gidon Tabor who had arrived in town in 1784 after 4 years in service. When the town was formally organized in 1788 Gideon was elected Moderator and later town Representative. When he died in 1824 his record for town service was: 28 years as Moderator, Representative to the Legislature 30 years, & Justice of the Peace for the same number of years. The first post office was established as Mount Tabor in 1875 & in 1891 changed to Griffith in honor of Vermont's first millionaire, Silas L. Griffith. He lived over the line in Danby but most of the mail coming to and out going was for his lumbering operations, saw mills & his charcoal plant in Mount Tabor. There is no longer a post office in town and all but about 3,000 acres are part of the Green Mountain National Forest. There are still some summer camps on land not in the National Forest.
