All that remains of a sugarhouse in the woods. The doors read Monarch, True & Blanchard Co., Newport VT. There are still logs piled next to it, ready to feed the fire, and piles of rusting sap buckets.

Issac Farrar, an early Enosburgh resident, is credited with inventing the wooden sap spout in 1798.

We just received our Newsletter that we always enjoy. This issue was very bitter sweet upon learning that the beautiful old church at the center was coming down. I had so hoped at least one more time next summer being able to take pictures inside and out because our ADAMS-wRIGHTS-NICHOLS family were some of the early pioneers on the forefront of building that church. We have in our records the family pews they paid for every year. The beautiful old lights are one of my favorite memories. Is there any chance we could schedule just more visit before tearing this structure down? Just tell us when and we will be there with our families!
It would be great if you had a snail mail address posted on this site. I have a few photos I want to send.
