Title:
Burklyn Hall
Town:
Burke
County:
Caledonia
State:
Vermont
Date:
1904 - 1906
Description:
This photo captures the construction of Burklyn Hall atop the Darling Ridge in East Burke, Vermont. The town line between East Burke and Lyndon runs through the house, hence the name Burklyn Hall. The house was the private residence of Elmer Darling, owner of The New Yorker Hotel in New York City that Elmer inherited from his father. Elmer operated a creamery across the street from Burklyn Hall that produced and shipped fresh cheese, butter, and milk to the hotel in New York daily by train. Elmer Darling is one of the men atop the building in this picture. Construction began in 1904 and the house was completed in 1906. This picture was most likely to have been taken in 1905. The hotel was still operating when Elmer died in 1932, but did not survive the Great Depression and was forced to close. In the historic photo the ground looks barren and there are rocks visible on the left of the foreground
