Original caption
View of Rutland Village from the West - The engraving shows the appearance of Rutland as it is entered from the west, upon the Burlington and Western Railroad. The ancient part of Rutland is the line of buildings on a gentle elevation a little eastward of the buildings in front. The railroad buildings appear on the right, above which, in the extreme distance, is seen Killington Peak, 3924 feet high (about nine or ten miles distant), the highest point of the Green Mountains in this part of the state.
