In August, 2012, the Randolph Community Forest grew by a bit over 80 acres, with the addition of two properties: the 77-acre Farrar farm, along Route 2, and 4.5 acres owned by the Town of Randolph. (You can read more about the donation of the Farrar property, and what the gift means for the Community Forest, right here.)
With the Farrar property, came the historic but dilapidated Levi Lowe homestead. As part of evaluating options for the homestead, the Randolph Community Forest Commission hired historic preservation specialist Martha Cummings to review the property, its significance and current condition. Her report is now available, and can be downloaded in the “Miscellaneous Documents” section.
There will be an opportunity to discuss the future of the property at the annual Forest Tour, Saturday, August 2nd at 9:00 am at the Randolph Town Hall.
