Description:
The description for this image reads, "Where trout abound- Averill Lake, a sportsman's paradise in Northeastern Vermont." The image shows several boats along the shoreline of the lake in the foreground. This image shows rowboats and canoes along the shoreline of Lake Averill. There is a cleared area in the foreground and the landscape around the lake is forested. There are only a few leaves on the trees, but they appear to be budding so the season is most likely spring. There are a few deciduous trees along the shore in the foreground and mostly conifers bordering the shore in the background. Esther Munroe Swift writes on 2006-2-4: Averill ranks as one of the least populated towns in Vermont. It was granted by New Hampshire\'s Benning Wentworth in 1762 to a group of men from Connecticut, one of whom was Samuel Averill, for whom the town was named. Included in the grant were also Brunswick, Ferdinand, Wenlock (which was later divided into Brighton & Ferdinand) and Maidstone.. later they were granted Lewis and Lemington. According to the census records Averill never had any residents until 1830, when there was one man. It reached its peak in population in 1880 when there were 48 people. In more recent years the area has been popular with fishermen and climbers, and for many years a summer camp was run by the Quimby family. Peter Leuthold writes on 2006-4-5: Looks more like boats owned by Quimby's on Forest Lake
