Outlines of History

One of the things I love about New England is the stone walls trailing off into forests and fields in a seemingly random fashion.

Most of them built in the Revolutionary period between 1775 and 1825, when farmers trying to clear land stacked them in walls to get them out of the way.

Today the stone walls are protected from removal or destruction by preservation laws.
