How did Stowe become the ski capital of the East? From the beginning, the community of Stowe has made the most of its natural setting-Mount Mansfield, the forests and fields, the clear mountain streams and fine air-to carve out an appealing, enduring, distinctively New England style of life. That appeal is beautifully presented in Images of America: Stowe. This book combines historical images with detailed narrative to document life in rural Stowe from the 1870s through its emergence as an unrivaled tourist and recreation center in the middle of the 20th century. Beyond their own appeal, the images describe how Stowe has managed to change with the times yet maintain its inviting character and amenities. Images of America: Stowe contains scenes from stereo views, photographs, and postcards. It shows the working side of Stowe: industries that involved logging, sawmills, farming, maple sugaring, and tourism. It also shows the more leisurely side of Stowe: the Lake Mansfield Trout Club, the Trapp Family Music Camp, hiking, skiing, Old Home Day parades, and school activities.
