Label Text:
This painting was adapted from an engraving by William H. Bartlett published in American Scenery, in either 1838 or 1840 (date usually given as 1840). View is looking north to the town of Hadley (looking south would be the Oxbow). By the early 1850s, a carriage road and hotel had been built on this site, which had become a popular tourist destination because it afforded panoramic views of the Connecticut Valley. Mead also owns the engraving by Bartlett (technically after drawing by Bartlett).
