Stone Walls & Cellar Holes at Squam Lakes Natural Science Center

October 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Stone Walls & Cellar Holes/For adults

Stonewalls and cellar holes built during the 1800s are found throughout the forests of New Hampshire. Some of these structures were built in unlikely places,making people today question the judgment of their builders. But, what dothese stone remains tell us about the past and do they serve any purpose today?The stone structures located on Science Center property provide some clues ofhow they were built and what purpose they served. We’ll look at how thesurrounding forest was affected by the disturbance associated with these stoneformations, how they are being utilized today by new homesteaders, and how the plants in the area provide clues to previous uses of the land. 

Please wear sturdy walking shoes as we will be hiking on and off-trail on uneven terrain.

Cost: $9/member; $11/non-member
