Hyde Park, Vermont, USA (Hydepark) - 1849 Hydepark
Lamoille Co. Hydepark is the county town. The Lamoille, Green, and other rivers give this town a great water power, some of which is advantageously improved. The soil is generally of a good quality and easily cultivated. There are in the north-east part of the town twelve ponds, containing from one half to fifty acres, beside several smaller ones. Trout have been abundant in most of them, but are becoming more scarce. Some of them have names, such as Great Pond, Clear Pond, George's Pond, Zack's Pond, Mud Pond, &c.
Hydepark village is situated in the south-west part of the town, on a beautiful elevated plain ; it contains a court house, jail, and jail house, built in 1836, by the inhabitants of the town, at which time it became the seat of justice for Lamoille County.
This town, having so valuable a water power, and being surrounded by a country rich in agricultural and mineral productions, and rapidly increasing in its manufacturing interest, it would not surprise the natives, if the "Iron Horse" should soon take a trip this way, to assist them in their laudable pursuits.
