This photo is of Gilder Meadow, the land given to John Van Gilder by the Mohican Nation. The mountain to the left is Jug End. Since I started my research over twenty years ago, I've always seen the area referred to as "Guilder Hollow." While researching deeds recently, I discovered that might be a fairly recent name. An 1873 deed of land from the estate of George L. Tullar to George F. Bradford refers to the area as "the 'Gilder Meadow' so called." The deed of 1837 from John Tullar to George L. Tullar refers to it the same way. I want to research the area deeds more thoroughly in part to track this usage.
My apologies for the line in the photo. I was given what was once a very good camera. Shortly after I received it, the camera developed this line. I understand I can fix this and will put this on my list of things to do.
