Historical Map - Brandon, Vermont - 1890
This view of Brandon, Vermont captures the town as it appeared at the end of the nineteenth century, a century that had brought growth and prosperity to the town. Settled in the 1770's, the town of Brandon was called Neshobe in its early days. Today Brandon is home to the Brandon Historic District, prized for its well preserved examples of Victorian architecture and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Following is a description written by Mrs. Augusta Kellogg in 1899:
"The surface of the town is generally level. The Green Mountains lie along the east line, presenting some lofty summits while to the west is the churchill-house-inn-streamsmaller Taconic Range, which ends apparently in the Sudbury area. The principal streams are Otter Creek, which runs through the town from south to north, and the Mill or Neshobe River, which rises among the mountains in Goshen and enters the town from the east. At the foot of the mountains, the Mill or Neshobe River receives the waters of a small pond, called Spring Pond and becomes a considerable mill stream.”
