The newly constructed bridge off East Hill Road in Rutland was dedicated in memory of Francis L Raboin who loved hiking these woods. Thanks to the family for their generous donation to construct the bridge and those who helped to build it.
Hunting Season is here. Be careful out there and wear orange or bright colors when you go. There is NO hunting on Sunday’s in Massachusetts.
Angered by the spread of colonial settlements westward, the chief King Philip (Metacomet) led the Nipmuc, Narragansett, and Wampanoag in defense of their land. In February 1676, several hundred Native Americans attacked Lancaster and captured Mary White Rowlandson, her three children, and twenty others and took them into the wilderness for several months. They returned to Lancaster in late April of 1676, where, as the inscription says, John Hoar of Concord negotiated Mary’s release at this huge, flat-topped granite ledge.
