What a GOOD opportunity to learn about New England’s historic and charming stone walls–with the added bonus of the special flavor they’ve added to Weir Farm–at Weir Farm National Historic Site‘s first ever Stone Wall Week.

Stone Wall Week provides visitors the opportunity to learn more about the park’s historic stone walls during special guided hikes every day at 10 a.m.. Join park ranger Joe Trapani on a ramble through the fields of Weir Farm National Historic Site to examine the three different types of stone walls on the property and learn about their rich history. The stone walls not only provide an opportunity to explore New England’s geologic and cultural past, but they have also served as a source of inspiration to the artists that have lived and visited here for over 135 years.

After the tour, stick around and create a sketch or painting with Weir Farm’s free-to-use supplies.

Tours will be offered daily at 10 a.m. beginning Wednesday, Oct. 25 through Sunday, Oct. 29, and will start outside the visitor center. No registration is required, but parking is limited, so guests are asked to carpool if possible.

Weir Farm National Historic Site is located at 735 Nod Hill Rd..
