Rutland county. Elizabeth Hickok, the daughter of Elizabeth and Uriah Hickok, was the first white child born in this town. This event occurred in 1774. The face of the town is uneven, and in some parts mountainous. It is watered by several ponds, the largest of which, lying partly in Sudbury, is Gregory's pond, the outlet of which is called Hubbardston river. This river empties into Lake Champlain at West Haven and is an excellent mill stream. The village at the northwesterly part of the town is pleasant and flourishing: it contains mills for the manufacture of various articles.
