State's second highest peak

— scene of christening legend —

Southward appears the summit of Mt. Killington, once called Pisgah, on which Rev. Samuel Peters claimed he christened the wilderness with the name "Verd-mont" in 1763. Most historians give credit to Dr. Thomas Young letter "to the inhabitants of 'Vermont'", sent to Windsor in 1777.
