Published DateMOULTONBOROUGH — On Saturday, June 8, the Lakes Region Conservation Trust (LRCT) and the Castle Preservation Society (CPS) are jointly offering an educational walking tour of the historic Lee Settlement in the Ossipee Mountains, on land that is now conserved as part of the Castle in the Clouds Conservation Area.
LRCT Guides Larry and Gerry DeGeorge will lead participants to cellarholes and historic sites, and share historic photos taken at these locations and stories of the people who lived here long ago.
The over 5,000-acre Castle in the Clouds Conservation Area was acquired by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust in 2002 and encompasses over 30 miles of trails stewarded by LRCT volunteers.
The Castle Preservation Society was established in 2004 and now owns and oversees the management of the Castle in the Clouds historic buildings and 135 acres of surrounding grounds for their historic, cultural, and community values. With their complementary nonprofit missions, LRCT and CPS work in partnership in caring for this landmark property.
The 3.2-mile easy-moderate educational walking tour on level to rolling terrain will depart promptly at 9 a.m. and return at approximately 11:30 a.m. Participants should plan to arrive by 8:45 a.m. to have time to register and prepare for the walk.
This program will be limited to 30 participants; preregistration is required. Those who preregister for the excursion will be sent additional detailed information.
