PHOTO OF THE MONTH
Muddy Pond’ in what is now Pine Hill Park was painted by William Henry Jackson, who became well known for his photography of the West. Jackson worked as a photographer in Rutland for a short period in the 1860s when this was painted, and enrolled in the Rutland Light Guard in 1862 at the age of 19. After his few years in Rutland he moved west and became a highly acclaimed landscape photographer. He lived until 1942.
