Lucy Stone - Home


The Lucy Stone Home Site is managed and owned by The Trustees of Reservations, a a non-profit land conservation and historic preservation organization dedicated to preserving natural and historical places in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The Home site includes 61 acres of forested land on the side of Coys Hill in West Brookfield, Massachusetts. The house where Stone was born and grew up is at the center of the property. The family owned the house as early as 1740. From this point until the middle of the 20th century the land was primarily farmland until it was abandoned and left to revert to forest. As a result the land is now used for harvesting of timber and hunting. The Trustees acquired the home site in 2002 and have been maintaining the property ever since.

Famous quotes containing the word home:

    Not too many years ago, a child’s experience was limited by how far he or she could ride a bicycle or by the physical boundaries that parents set. Today ... the real boundaries of a child’s life are set more by the number of available cable channels and videotapes, by the simulated reality of videogames, by the number of megabytes of memory in the home computer. Now kids can go anywhere, as long as they stay inside the electronic bubble.
    Richard Louv (20th century)
