Woodford, Vermont

Bennington county. This mountain town is 7 miles E. from Bennington on the road to Brattleborough. Population, 1830, 395.

Woodford contains several large ponds, from which issue branches of Woloomsack and Deerfield rivers. There is a good deal of wild scenery on the road in crossing the mountains from Bennington through Woodford and Searsburgh: the gurgling of the streams down the mountain sides, allay, in a great degree, the fatigue of the journey. The greater part of this township is too elevated and broken for cultivation. It is a good location for the sportsman; for fish and fowl are abundant, and the deer, the bear, and other wild animals, roam with almost undisputed sway.
