George Fuller's (1822-1884) early paintings provide us with a record of the wide-open sky and natural formations of Franklin County landscape in the mid-nineteenth century. The distinctive geographic features of Franklin County appear in many of Fuller's works. This view, painted around 1855, from the east shore of the Connecticut River, in the town of Sunderland, features Mount Sugarloaf. The Pocumtuck Native Americans called this mountain Wequamps and likened it to a beaver. Note that farmers had cleared most of the land fit for farming. The fence in the foreground also shows the effect of farming on the landscape.
