A family poses for a picture on the cliffs of Mt.Tom around 1915. This photo was taken near the Tea Pavilion on the east side of the mountain with the Summit House in the background.

A wide angle view of the Mt.Tom Summit House just above the Tea Pavilion on the east side of the Mt.Tom summit. The stone foundation of the house still stands, part of the radio communications building.
