This shelter replaced Thendara Shelter
This was built to replace Thendara. Young Ted and I cleaned up the site (Vermont’s Thendara) a few days before the annual meeting in May, 1958 and salvaged what we could, which wasn’t much. In June the lumber was bought and we started rebuilding. [T. N. Goddard] The lumber was delivered to the site so the back-breaking work of carrying materials was eliminated. 5 1/2 days of labor later we had a new camp ready to use. It is a 12 x 8 foot lean-to heavily made which sleeps eight without crowding. It was renamed so as not to be confused with the New York Section Thendara. [LT News, August, 1958] A few weeks ago some vandals managed to tip over this shelter and the local club members worked on getting it back on its foundation. [LT News, June 1929] This camp located near Harmon Hill in the Bennington section and it takes the place of the old Deerview Cabin which died of old age.
