Lynds Hill took its name from the family of the same name, who were early settlers of the area. The last log cabin in Plymouth was that of John Lynds. A portion of it was still visible within the last decade. John Lynds and his brother, Levi, both served in the Civil War. This was School District No. 7, and the so-called Headle schoolhouse stood at the four corners below Sargent (now Szostak) farm. The roads converging here, leading from Plymouth Notch to Amherst Lake over Pine Hill, earlier referred to as Blueberry Hill, to Five Corners, Bradley Hill and Pinney Hollow.
