Hogback: Help Unveil the Bishop Farm


Date & Time: 
Jul 15 2017 - 9:00am - 11:30am

The Bishop family were the first non-native settlers on the land that became the Hogback Mountain Conservation Area. For two generations, they worked at carving a farm out of the forest. The stony remains of the foundations of their house, barn, sheds, corrals and other structures can be seen just off Grant Road in the Conservation Area. We’re gradually cleaning up this abandoned site. Note – this is NOT archaeology. We are not trying to uncover artifacts. We’re just removing plants and vegetative debris that are smothering the stonework. This is a very emotionally satisfying project - revealing evidence of the hard work of the people who came before us on this land. Bring your own favorite brush clearing tool, or borrow one from our stash. Meet at the Grant Road entrance to the Conservation Area. Map and more info at hogbackvt.org.
