Several things about the 1869 map intrique me. First there is no road to Lyon Mt. which at that time was called Rogersfield, I believe. In fact there don’t seem to be any roads anywhere except the Old Smugglers’ Road. What was being smuggled? It is likely that there was a wagon road from Dannemora and Ellenburg. The dam and flow line that is shown must refer to the old wooden structure that washed out. I think that the new dam was built in 1922 and must have made a lot of employment for local people. I’d guess that the sand needed for cement came from a pit near the DuBrey farm. Once I was told that the DuBrey land was a grant for Union Army service. Later that spot was used as a local baseball field and after that as a site of the Atlas missile base. Somewhere I have a 35mm slide of “our” Atlas missile standing on the Chazy Lake launching pad. It looked like it was ready to go. Smoke or steam was rising from parts of it. I noticed the Meader Hotel as being close to the pump house which came later. Is that the same place Eleanor Roosevelt stayed in 1934. Lots of questions to be answered.
