Stonewall restoration at Arrowhead

stonewall crew end of day 5-21-17 2a

When Herman Melville and his family moved to Arrowhead in 1850, it was already an old farm. The stonewall along Holmes Road was probably already there. After a couple hundred years, it’s time to restore this iconic New England wall.
We were amazingly lucky to have Master Craftsman Neil Rippingale lead a two-day workshop on May 20-21 for Greenagers and others, rebuilding 75 feet of wall. Thanks to Housatonic Heritage and Weir Farm, a National Park Service historic site in Wilton, CT for organizing the workshop.
Later in the summer, a work crew from the Greenagers will return to continue the work. For more information, seeĀ www.greenagers.org, www.housatonicheritage.org
