READFIELD —The first Readfield History Walk of the fall will take place at the Fogg Conservation Area at 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 19.

The excursion will include the original trail and an expansion done in 2013 by Readfield Trails Committee. Walkers will also visit nearby old Marston Cemetery. Research materials and pictures of the Fogg, Marston, Hawes and Gove families, who homesteaded the immediate area, are available. Walkers should bring a sandwich and drink, wear sturdy walking shoes and dress in layers. Walking sticks are recommended.

The land that is Fogg Conservation Area was part of the Fogg homestead for nearly two centuries. In the early 1990s, after the farm was sold and subdivided, 15 acres was donated to the town of Readfield with a conservation easement to the Kennebec Land Trust.

There is no fee — donations are welcome. For more information or directions, visit www.readfieldhistorywalks.blogspot.com or email [email protected].
