Pumpkinvine spur to Krider Nursery in Middlebury

friendsPumpkinvine News

I just ran across this Pumpkinvine-related photo in a video on the Middlebury town website.  The video shows what a vital part of the Middlebury economy the Krider Nursery was and how important the Pumpkinvine railroad was for shipping nursery stock for the business.  Rex Krider: Introduction to Krider Nurseries and Krider Garden

The legend on the bottom left of the photo identifies various part of the nursery. The road going across the photo is County Road 8. The Pumpkinvine railroad curves across the right side and you can see Krider World’s Fair Garden to its left.
