Also the surrounding area was called Sugar Hill because people came to enjoy the maple syrup made here."

Photo of the marshland along State Route 18 east of Wellington taken 1948-49. Writing on reverse of photo: Route 18 sinks out of sight. This highway crosses the marshland two miles east of Wellington and following torrential rains in early April 1948 the highway gave way sinking - not inches but many feet leaving caverns in which bouses could have been dumped. A contract was let for $32,951 for fill and new paving with July 31 the completion date. On June 1st workmen moved in paving equipment only to discover large caverns were forming in the new fill. By June 10 a large section of the roadway had simply vanished leaving huge craters with layers of the old muck strata turned up on edge showing the old logs put down through the swamp by the first settlers. Weekend crowds came to view the calamity offer advice and predictions. Farther and farther back into the fields went the huge conveyers bringing more and more dirt to fill the hungry may of the fissures. By mid-November the road was still sinking and the earth movers worked around the clock. In the meantime township roads were being ruined by detoured traffic. It was mid-summer of 1949 before the project was finalized with the cost estimated at $500,000.""
