This small 14 acre property tucked away off of Lawton Foster Road offers a short half mile hike and history lesson. There is not a set trail system on the property although it is very defined at the entrance. The property has what is called a “wander zone” as the trails fade. Here is a large cluster of spirit stone gatherings placed by the Native Americans. For such a small property there are hundreds of them. There is also a historic cemetery with the grave of Thomas Brightman who fought in the American Revolution. For more information visit the Hopkinton Historical Association.
