In 1807, President Thomas Jefferson passed the Embargo Act, prohibiting trade with Great Britain and Canada. This made things very difficult for local Vermonters, who began smuggling goods back and forth with Canada through a natural-made pass in the mountains—hence "Smuggler's Notch".
Over one hundred years later, Marion Post Wolcott photographed the adventuresome skiers who made their way up Mount Mansfield and the Sterling Range. Though the area would not become a resort until 1956, many locals enjoyed skiing down the mountains. The hut pictured was used during the year by a forest ranger, but was open to skiers in the winter. Complete with a wood stove, it was a perfect pit stop. Unfortunately, the hut suffered a recent fire on Christmas Eve 2015 and is now reduced to a stone shell.
