A little bit of History:

Killington is a town in Rutland County, Vermont, United States. The town was previously named Sherburne,  after landholder Colonel Benjamin Sherburne but was renamed to its original name, "Killington," in 1999.

Killington Peak and Pico Peak  were both owned by the late Mortimer Proctor of the Vermont Marble Company. Pico was given to him as a 21st birthday present in 1910. He sold it to Pico Ski Inc. in 1948.

Killington Peak was bought by Mr. Proctor in 1919 from M.E. Wheeler of Rutland and given to the State of Vermont in 1938. The Vermont Marble Company sold around Killington Peak some 6,000 acres of land to the State in 1945 to be included in the Coolidge State Forest. This is the land which the Sherburne Corporation had leased from the State for its ski lifts, lodges, etc. in 1957.

Killington Peak is second highest peak in Vermont, at 4,235 feet in elevation, as well as one of the highest in all of New England.
