It looks like the flywheel has more weight on one side so possibly it's for an early pump jack or something similar. What does it say on the side of the weight on the flywheel?

Easy to read "Rutland VT" on the larger of the 2 wheels. I never thought to look at the other piece for writing. Right now we have a foot or so of frozen snow on the ground and the wheel is buried. Next time I walk my dog, today or tomorrow I will check the other part for writing.

There were a number of granite quarries in this area, I am not aware of rock crushing in the past thought one is operating now. The nearest is a good 10 miles from this park. Maybe a farmer reworked it for something else?

I did a little research and the vee belt came around in 1915 now you have multiple belts this was pattened in 1925 and went into production in 1928.
Well at least we can date it to that or later.

When I worked in St. Louis the company I worked for bought out a neighboring company. That neighboring company had two giant air compressors with flywheels like that. An electric motor drove the compressor from the wheel with the belt grooves. I think there were 7 belts on it. It reminded me of a stationary steam engine.
