About this Location

In 2007, 622 acres of land in the Hollister Hill area of town, formerly owned by Virginia Stranahan, was deeded as a gift to the Town of Marshfield, via the Vermont Land Trust, who purchased the land from the heirs of Virginia Stranahan for the Town. The land is for the use, betterment, and enjoyment of the people of the Town of Marshfield, as well as the public at large, in perpetuity.

The gifted land comes with some conservation-minded restrictions on its use at the request of the Stranahan family and the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board which provided about one-half of the funding for the purchase by the Vermont Land Trust.

Parking lots with kiosks and maps are located on Hollister Hill Road near the end of Thompson Road and on Jake Martin Road, on the left before the dead end.
