Charlotte, East Charlotte, Prindle Corners


      "This township is pleasantly situated on the lake shore, and is watered by the river Laplott . . . and Lewis Creek . . . The eastern part was principally timbered with pine, hemlock, etc. There are no elevations which deserve the names of mountains, but a range of considerable hills running through the center of town from north to south. From many parts of this ridge the scenery to the west is peculiarly picturesque. The lake with its islands, may be seen at a great distance. Add to this the extensive range of lofty mountains with their broken summits which lie beyond it, and it is believed that, particularly at some seasons of the year, the beauty and sublimity of the prospect is not excelled by any part of our country . . . The first attempt to settle this town was made by Derick Webb. He first began in March 1776, but soon left. He came in again, in March 1777 and left in May following; but no permanent settlement was made til 1784, when Derick Webb and Elijah Woolcut moved into the town, and were followed by others, so that the town was soon after organized. John McNeil was one of the early settlers."

(Gazetteer of Vermont, Hayward, 1849)
