Excerpt from A Sketch of Lebanon Springs: Its Attractions as a Summer Resort; A Visit to the Shakers; History of the Town; Columbia Hall; Railroad Guide, &C

Before the Revolution the efficacy of the water began to excite great interest, and many families from different cities have be come so much attached to the place that they have made it their summer home for more than twenty consecutive years. The hill slopes which guard the valley present eligible sites for cottages.

Not more than five hours at the most, and the New York passenger will find himself at the depot, a short distance from the Hall. The completion of the Harlem Extension6 Lebanon Springs.

Railroad renders it easy Of access. There is i no change of cars, and a person is in no dan ger of losing his connections, his friends, or his baggage. Standing on the piazza, we look over the Lebanon Valley, bounded on the east by the Berkshire hills, on the south and west by the West Range. To the 'northwest the valley reaches away in fertile beauty to the pleasant village of Nassau, on the road to. Albany. Maple Hill, to the southeast, rises with an easy mpe from the clustering hamlet at our feet, and a mile distant lies the village of New Lebanon. The Wyomanock Creek, (its name Of Indian origin,) ?ows through the valley, blending its waters with the Kinder hook on its way to the Hudson. It seems to be shut in by hills from the rude world and a poetic quiet rests over this picture in repose like that which (in our imagination) rested upon the halls of Merrie England. It seems to carry one back to the days of Spen ser, when nature found true worshippers in verse or still further back to the Augustan ageg when the Campagna was a garden in stead Of a desert, and pastoral poetry was quoted in the palaces of the Caesars. From the days of Queechy to the visit of Sir Henry Vincent, a little more than a year ago.
