This undated site is deep in the woods below Suzy's Peak and is thought to have been worked by the Potter family.  It is about 1/4 mile east of what is being termed an old stagecoach road that was gone before the 1854 map compilation.  Evidence of it having been a sugarhouse is the cement platform in the center that would have been used for the evaporator, the stove door found there (below), and the lack of the kinds of artifacts usually found at sites that were residences.  If we can identify the manufacturer of the stove door using the eagle emblem as a guide we might be able to date it.  Nearby is the remnants of another sugarhouse that this one possibly replaced
