Title:
A View From Hill Farm Inn
Town:
Sunderland
County:
Bennington
State:
Vermont
Date:
2006-03-09
Description:
This photograph shows a view from the Hill Farm Inn. This recent photo shows that a paved road has replaced the once dirt road at the center of the image. Utility lines and poles still exist, but only on one side of the road. You can still see the church and the cemetery in the background; however, there is more vegetation obstructing the view. The gas pump on the left hand side of the photo still remains. You can see the addition of houses and trees. In the background, the once open fields are now heavily forested. The season is spring.

View from Hill's Farm Inn
Town:
Sunderland
County:

Date:
1931 - 1940
Description:
This historic photograph was taken from Hill's Farm Inn in Sunderland. A narrow dirt road, which is lined with utility poles, cuts through the landscape and curves around a church in the distance. A 1920s or 1930s era gas pump, with a Mobilgas logo on the globe, provides service to motorists along the left side of the road. A small, wood-frame with a slate covered gable-roof is located behind the gas pump. It is possible that the building is an old one-room schoolhouse, but it is impossible to determine its use from this image. A barn, probably part of the Hill's Farm Inn, sits along the right side of the road in the foreground of the image. The barn also appears to have a slate roof and is covered in wood clapboards. The barn is slightly run down. A wood fence extends from the front of the barn out toward the road. In the distance, a white church with a tall spire sits at the curve of the road. Another small structure, most likely an old stable, a garage, or storage shed, sits behind the church. A cemetery spreads out in the field across the road from the church. A few deciduous trees and bushes are planted along the road. Gently rolling hills, which are partially cleared, give way to much larger forested hills in the background. This photograph was taken during the early years of automobile travel. The gas pump is a relatively early design, and the road has not yet been paved.
