Caledonia county. First settled, 1787. Wells river and its branches afford this town a good water power.—There are a number of ponds in Groton, well stored with excellent fish, some of which are large and handsome. The soil of the town is generally hard, but there is some choice land along the streams, and good timber.
The wife of a Mr. Page of this town, in the year 1819, produced four lusty "green mountain boys" at a birth. When domestic manufactures of this description and amount, are adduced as evidence of the prosperity of a town, it is useless to talk about water power, cotton factories, or wool growing.
