This month, explore the historic Sears Land with Diana Chaplin

Updated: Apr 7, 2020

Join the Weston Forest and Trail Association for a holiday walk on the Old Sears Estate land. The walk will be on Sunday, December 4, 2016 and start at 2 P.M. We will meet at the far bench on the Town Green (see starred location on map) and walk from there into the woods. There will be a holiday tribute to the Sears Family who donated this important open space to Weston. Refreshments will be served after the walk. Come enjoy our history and open space.

A map and more details about the area can be found in chapter 3 of Elmer Jones’s book Walks on Weston Conservation Land. This book ($5) and a trail map ($10) can be purchased at the Conservation Commission office in the Town Hall. (Edited to show reduced book price.)

You do not have to be a member of the Weston Forest and Trail Association to join the walk, but please consider becoming a member. Your membership dues support the maintenance and preservation of Weston’s open space. Well behaved dogs are welcome but must be on leash. Additional information can be found in sections of Pam Fox’s book Farm Town to Suburb, Chapter 13, "Boston Post Road East" and Chapter 14, "The Horace Sears Estate."

For more information please contact the walk leader, Diana Chaplin, (EDIT: contact info removed after walk).
