Brandon, VT

Rutland County, Vermont, 1857

Brandon, Vt., Rutland co. Watered by Otter Creek, Mill River, and Spring Pond, on which streams are good mill sites. Some of the land is level, with rather a light soil, but that on Otter Creek is excellent. Bog iron ore is found here; also, abundance of marble. There are two curious limestone caverns in this town. 60 miles N. W. from Windsor, and 40 S. W. from Montpelier. The Rutland Railroad passes through it. (Gazetteer of the United States of America, 1854)
