Enjoy an unforgettable journey through time…..
Join Tin Mountain Teacher/Naturalist Carol Foord on Sunday, June 19 from 1 through 5 PM for a fascinating foray to uncover the history of the Saco Valley region through local stonework’s in the Tin Mountain Conservation Center Nature Program, “History of Saco Valley through Stonewalls and Cellar Holes.”
Foord will journey from 1725 to 1825 visiting Lovewell’s monument, a slave’s grave, Frye’s cellar hole, Molly Ockett’s cave, and numerous other unique stonework sites. As this program is entirely in the field, dress in layers, wear sturdy walking shoes, and bring water and snacks. Each site involves short, easy walking. Carpooling between sites is encouraged.
