"Waubanaukee Indians first named it "Tah-wak-be-dee-ee-wadso" or Saddle Mountain. Samuel de Champlain's explorers in the 1600's called it "lion couchant" or resting lion. The name "Camel's Rump" was used on a historical map by Ira Allen in 1798, and this became "Camel's Hump" in 1830. The park came about as an original gift of 1000 acres including the summit from Colonel Joseph Battell, who originally bought Camel's Hump to preserve the wooded mountainous view from his home. In 1911, care of the mountain was entrusted to the State Forester who managed with the aim to keep it in a primitive state according to Battell's wish."

"This gem of a capitol is as open and accessible as one would expect in a state of small towns and villages. The Senate Chamber has elliptical curves and replicated carpet and drapes from the mid-19th century. Representatives Hall is the largest chamber in the State House—restored to its late-1850s splendor. Two stained glass skylights help to illuminate the Cedar Creek Room—with one that features the state coat of arms. "Lincoln" by Brattleboro-born sculptor Larkin Goldsmith Mead, dominates the main lobby of the State House. "View of Montpelier" by James Franklin Gilman (1885) shows the red roof and dome of the 19th century."
