About Matthew Walter
This property has been in our family since 1968 and the house is the 2nd to stand on this location. The land was the largest of 4 lots which comprised a farm which dated back to the colonial era. The 18th century farmhouse is located on the road just down the hill from our house. Of the original 255 acre lot bought by our family, 89 acres are still ours, while most of the rest is now town land, donated by my parents and others as conservation land open for public recreational use. Most of our remaining land is now under conservation easement, with hiking and skiing trails open to the public connecting to trails on town land.
