Sixth ANNUAL FRYE MOUNTAIN HERITAGE TOUR
SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 28th
BARBARA BOULAY: 589-4414 or Debi Stephens: 589-4760
Once again the Montville Historical Society is offering horsedrawn wagon tours of Frye Mountain on September, 28th with a tour in the morning and another in the afternoon. Each ride aboard the open wagons lasts about 2 hours and there are six wagons. Frye Mountain, now a state games preserve, was once the home to many families of Montville, Morrill and Knox. Most of the farms were bought by (sold off to) the Federal government in the late 1930's. On the tour we travel past marked sites of old farms, schools and cemeteries and a forgotten part of Frye including narratives about the places and the people who lived here. Last year several people shared information and stories they knew about Frye Mountain and its residents, and we’re looking forward to learning more this year.
Pre-registration is needed to confirm a seat on the tour. This year we are asking for a $20 deposit to be refunded when and if you show up for the ride. We are doing this to insure that all drivers, who donate their horses, equipment and time,have a full wagon load. The times for the rides will be announced. For more information and to sign up, please call Barbara Boulay at 589-4414 or Debi Stephens at 589-4760
