This chalk drawing was made at the foot of Charlemont road in Buckland Center showing the Mary Lyon Church at the end of the road. It was a serendipitous finding in the research for this website. There is no record of this chalk in the RSW diary or in any of the exhibition notices. Both the sugar house in the right foreground and the barn ell behind it are now gone.
The picture (right) shows the road today. As you can see, many of the trees that comprise the featured beauty of the composition did not survive time and are now gone.
