The August 24 1933 issue of the Independent Reporter lists 7 CWA projects for Somerset County, including $8,000 for the Horsetail Hill road from 12 corners all the way to Cass Corner in Cornville. A February 15, 1934 article adds some history.. From Clarks corner to Parkers corner, a large number of rocks to be used in the road were being taken from a former stagecoach stop called Deansville Depot. In clearing out the land for farming, an area next to the Bagley road was a dumping ground for large rocks and boulders and became the place to gather to take the stagecoach which used that route from Skowhegan to the Forks.
