Join us to read 420 years of history in the landscape surrounding the Melone Homestead. The Sears Land was first settled in 1698, abandoned in the 18th century, and has been repurposed multiple times since the mid-19th century. Cindy Bates, Emily Hutcheson, and Laurie Bent will lead the walk. Optional addendum: brief tour of the house in small groups.

We will gather at the Melone Homestead, home of Land's Sake's offices — rain or shine. The house stands at the end of a VERY LONG driveway off Crescent Street. Look for the Weston Forest & Trail banner by the mailbox labeled "27." Crescent Street is off Rt 20/Boston Post Road, east of Weston Center. See map below. To get there via GPS, use "25 Crescent St." The house is also accessible via several trails from the Mass Central Rail Trail. (Walk your bikes, please.)

All ages are welcome, and dogs on leash, too. Walkers need not be Weston Forest & Trail Association members. Our dues support the maintenance and preservation of Weston’s open space. Trail maps of all Weston conservation land can be purchased at the Conservation Commission office in Town Hall, 11 Town House Road, Weston ($10).

Tailgate refreshments will follow the walk.
