Passumpsick [Passumpsic] River, Vermont
This river rises in Caledonia, and on the south border of Essex counties. It passes south about 35 miles and falls into the Connecticut at Barnet, about a mile below the foot of Fifteen Mile Falls. It has a number of tributaries. This is a valuable stream, both on account of the numerous mill sites it affords, and the large tracts of choice intervale it forms on its borders.—It is generally deep, but in many places it is very rapid, and forms beautiful cascades.
