Cold Spring

Sudbury,Vermont is a small town, but we sure have a lot of wonders. In our search for the wonders of Sudbury, we have found a wonder that will knock your socks off! Cold Springs, ever heard of it? No? Well sit on down and we’ll tell you about it.

There are many stories surrounding Cold Spring. During the Revolutionary War, the soldiers would stop and drink from the spring and fill up their canteens, so they could keep going. One time two prisoners were brought to Vermont by some Indians. One of the prisoners was taller than the other, and the Indians were bullying the taller man who had a broken foot. The smaller of the two told the Indians to try and hurt his foot and the Indian fell over, so they allowed the prisoners to also get a drink of water. Cool stories, huh?

Cold Spring is mysterious in many ways because it is uncharted, so almost no one knows where it is. You would have to have special permission in order to see it because it’s probably on private property. When people do see it, they think of it as a beauty of nature and a legacy to Vermont. So when you go down Willowbrook Road again, keep an eye out and be aware of the magnificent beauty of Sudbury. At one time, it was located on the property of Benoni Griffin.

This spring is a natural water source that comes from the mountains. So it is a wonder to every soldier or any Indians that lived in the days when Sudbury was a new town. They would have to climb the mountains in order to find the nearest water source around and then they could get a drink of water and take a rest, so when they wake up they will be rested and have a beverage. This source of water was also important for early Sudbury settlers, travelers and animals. Another upside to the springs is it is right next to Crown Point Road, so now you don’t have to walk a rocky trail, instead you can now walk along a flat nice trail to the spring!

As you can clearly see this is definitely a wonder of Sudbury and if you disagree, well thats too bad. Just kidding! This wonder had provided water for people and many tales of the past surround the spring.
