Once again the Montville Historical Society is offering horse-drawn wagon tours of Frye Mountain on Sunday, Sept. 18. There will be two tours, leaving at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., respectively, from a field about a quarter-mile up from the main entrance off Route 220 towards Walker Ridge (follow the posted signs). Each ride aboard the open wagons lasts about two hours.

Frye Mountain, now a wildlife management area, was once home to many families of Montville, Morrill, and Knox. Most of the farms were bought by the Federal government in the late 1930s. The tour route passes sites of old farms, schools, and cemeteries and includes narratives about the places and the people who lived there.

Space is limited, so pre-registration is needed to reserve a seat with a $20 deposit that will be refunded when the participants arrive for their ride. The pre-registration is to ensure that all drivers, who donate their horses, equipment, and time, have a full wagon-load but not more than their teams can pull. For more information and to sign up, call Barbara Boulay at 589-4414.
