       "There are no mountains, and but few hills in this township. The south and western parts are timbered principally with pine, the soil is dry and sandy, but produces good rye and corn. The remaining part of the township is timbered with hard wood, and is more natural to grass . . .  The first permanent settlement was made in this township in 1783, by Messrs. Smiths, Winchels, and Willard. The first settlers were principally from Salisbury, Connecticut.    In 1789, there was a very great scarcity of provisions in this part of the country, and the settlers suffered extremely on that account." 

(Gazetteer of Vermont, Hayward, 1849)
