Town:

County:

Vermont
Date:
1914
Description:
This image shows four people traveling down Baxter Ave in Derby Line. Two people are walking and the other two are riding in a wagon. There is house with several out buildings in the background, probably a farm. The hillslope next to the road is deviod of vegetation and seems to be eroding; it was probably disturbed in the road's construction process. The slope is made of gravel and rounded cobbles, most likley glacial in origin; it seems to be part of a large, incised terrace. There is also a large pile of sediment on the opposite side of the road. Most of the land in the photos is open fields but there is one stand of trees next to the road. See AOT1130_.jpg - AOT1137_.jpg (or lanternslides 49-56) for other Baxter road pictures. The road is in a deep gully. Esther Munroe Swift writes on 2005-1-21: Hamilton Child's Gazetteer & Business Directory for Orleans County, c.1884 lists Henry E. Baxter as a farmer with 20 acres and a house on Main Street.
