We are truly excited to announce that, at long last, the Adams Farm on Trescott Road is to be protected. The Hanover Conservancy is working with a pair of inspiring landowners to permanently protect the majority of this historic agricultural landscape. Surrounded by the Appalachian Trail corridor in rural Etna, the property offers a spectacular view of Mount Ascutney and is listed in Hanover’s Scenic Locales Report. The Adams Farm has long been a key priority for both the Conservancy and the Town. The new landowners wish to revitalize agriculture on this otherwise highly developable piece of prime farmland. MORE
A 77 foot, 5 ton white pine has now made its way through downtown Hanover from Oak Hill to the Mink Brook Nature Preserve, courtesy of Chippers, Liberty Utilities, Lawson Crane & Rigging, Dartmouth College, Royal Trail Works, and loads of volunteers. It’s resting now at the Brook Road gate and offering a temporary exhibit on events in the life of Hanover and this tree while it was growing. Stop by to have a look! UPDATES POSTED HERE
