This shelter replaced Emily Proctor Lodge (1st)

Cost of this lodge was $154. which was a gift of Emily D. Proctor. [LT News, May 1939]

It is particularly to be regretted that the lovely Breadloaf Glen where the new Emily Proctor Lodge was built in the spring of 1938 was in the direct path of the big storm. The road to South Lincoln was obliterated all the way into the camp. Across from the site of the camp the torrential rains started a mud slide which took not only the trees and other growth, but even the soil, so that what used to be a beautiful mossy green diff is now an ugly, raw, rocky ledge. This mass of earth and trees dammed the brook, and the pent-up waters lifted the camp from its foundation and twisted it into a new location. Fortunately, the building itself was little damaged. It has been repaired and the foundation replaced so that it can be used until some more definite plan can be made after the road is rebuilt. [LT News, Oct. 1939]

The Emily Proctor Trail passes an unmaintained spur leading left to the abandoned Emily Proctor Shelter. [GB 15th Edition, 1956]

This shelter, long in disuse and abandoned, is to be burned. For some time, it has been a hazard in the forest. Paul Newcomb consented to seeing to its disposal. [LT News, May 1959]
