Stone Fences

As you walk around the Might Woods Trail you will see many old stone walls. These stone walls were used in the past to mark property lines for landowners. You may also see what looks like holes or ditches throughout Mighton Woods. These are thought to be old building foundations.

Throughout some of the surrounding forests it is thought that the stone fences may even mark the land where sheep once grazed. In the early 1800’s some of the forests in Massachusetts were cleared for pasture and stone walls were built to keep the sheep in.

While some of the fences still mark the property lines for the current owners of the property, most of the them are simply reminders of the past.
