June 19 at 12 p.m. — WEST RUTLAND — Step back 250 years in West Rutland on Saturday, June 19, when the Crown Point Road Association will hold a field talk at the site of a Revolutionary War-era homestead in West Rutland and hear its story. The spot was found when the interchange for the Route 4 bypass was planned and along with evidence of an occupied cabin is considered unusually undisturbed. The walk starts at noon at the Timberloft farm stand, 190 Old Boardman Hill Road off Business-4 in West Rutland.
The walk is co-hosted by the Crown Point Road Association and Julia Purdy, a descendant of an early owner of property in that area, with the participation of the West Rutland Historical Society. The discussion will include some history of the Crown Point Military Road that passed through the area, the early settlers and the Revolutionary era fort close by.
Rain or shine. For more information, email Julia Purdy at [email protected]
