Bird's Eye View of Enosburg Falls
- This photo captures the river meandering by a town built on the river's old terrace. In the foreground a cleared hill slopes down to the river. The lower edge is fenced with a wooden fence. It is hard to make out any details in the many houses in town. A couple roads and a large church can be seen. Wooded ridges fade into the distance. Postage (on back) marked sent Feb. 25, 1907. This postcard was "published and for sale by the Standard Stationery Store." The x refers to the location of the writer's home. Note the erosion on the stream bank near the wooden fences in the foreground. Also note that the lower areas are cleared and open while the upper hill slopes are left forested. Esther Munroe Swift writes on 2005-1-24: Enosburg shares with five other towns (among them Berkshire & Westfield) the distinction of having been created to help the new state of Vermont raise money in 1780. The fee was 9 pounds per person. Among the grantees were General Roger Enos who was Ira Allen's father in law, Governor Thomas Chittenden, Moses Robinson, Roswell Hopkins and many members of the Fay family to name only a few.
