Mansfield, Vermont

Lamoille county. There is some good land in this town, on Brown's river and the branches of Waterbury river, but in general it is too mountainous even for grazing. It lies 20 miles N.W. from Montpelier, 20 E. by N. from Burlington, and 13 S.W. from Hyde Park.—Population, 1830, 279. First settled 1799.

Mansfield Mountains extend through the town of Mansfield from N. to S. They belong to the Green mountain range, and the nose and chin, so called, from their resemblance to the face of a man lying on his back, exhibits some of the loftiest summits in the state. The nose is 3,933 feet above tide water; the chin, 4,279.
