This property, slated for development, was turned over to the town in lieu of tax payments. It consists of about 22 acres with some riverfront and borders the state recreational trail system. As you start along the trail you will see a large number of red pine seedlings that were planted along the sides of what was the road in the proposed development. This trail goes around the property and eventually brings you to what was a railroad bed and is now the Rockingham Rail Trail. There is a nice view of the river here and you can access the river on the downstream side of the railroad bridge.
