Description:
This stereoview was taken from atop a hill overlooking the town. The homes are clustered together in an open valley surrounded by broad hills. Large stretches of cleared land can be seen on the hillsides in the background, divided by wooden fencing. Buildings in town include a church, or two, a possible schoolhouse and many homes. There are many fields in town and possibly a town green in the center. This could be summer. Esther Munroe Swift writes on 2005-1-13: This view was taken from the opposite side of the valley shown in LS01217. Hamilton Child's Gazetteer & Business Diectory for Orange County,c.1888 wrote glowingly of the village, noting especially the beauty of the Court House, which was built in 1847 at the head of the Common; Chelsea Academy, the Orange County Hotel,First National Bank of Chelsea, 2 churches: CongregationaL & Methodist, 4 general stores, 1 drug store, 2 harness shop, four blacksmiths, a wagon shop,flouring & feed mills, 2 furniture stores, 3 milliner & fancy goods shops, boot & shoe store, 2 groceries, drug store, photograph gallery,dentist, merchant tailor, tannery, livery & stable, a few other lesser business and 6 lawyers & 4 doctors,two undertakig establishments.
