Sunderland at The Ledges was part of old Elder Cushman land, now owned by Dr. Arthur B. Holmes, who still calls it by the earlier name. The cut through solid rock at the lower end of the farm, where the railroad was put through, is called The Ledges. Sunderland was named by William Rand, Jr., son of the minister of the same name, for the town in the Connecticut Valley, in western Massachusetts, from which the family came to Kingston.
