Windham, Vermont

Windham county. Branches of West, Williams' and Saxton's rivers give this town a good water power. The surface of the town is elevated; the soil, though strong, is better adapted for grazing than tillage. About 4,000 sheep are kept here.

Windham was formerly a part of Londonderry. It is 30 miles N.E. from Bennington and 25 S.W. from Windsor. Population, 1830, 847.

The actynolite [actinolite] embedded in talc, is found in this town, in slender four sided prisms of a leak green color. The crystals vary in size; some are six inches in length and an inch in breadth. These crystals are abundant. Chlorite, garnets, serpentine, and steatite are also found.
