Tour Allen Hill Farm with owner Charlie Langevin and learn about “Native American Lifeways Along the Quinebaug River” with Nicholas F. Bellantoni, PhD, Emeritus State Archaeologist. If the weather is bad we’ll skip the outdoor tour and have an indoor program.

 Allen Hill Farm consists of 350 diverse acres along the Quinebaug River. The views from the hill are spectacular, especially the eastward view down the hill towards the Quinebaug River. Now in its sixth generation, the farm has been in the same family since 1891.

We’ll be welcomed by owner Charlie Langevin and learn the history of the farm and Christmas tree operation as we walk down the hill to the Quinebaug River (wagon rides provided upon request).  The Langevins have invested in sustainable agriculture including solar energy, conservation practices, and wildlife habitat improvements for the New England cottontail. They have also restored their barn to provide a scenic venue for events.

At the river we will meet Dr. Bellantoni and learn about the antiquity of Indians from the area based on archaeological sites and historic records, and learn how they utilized the river’s resources for their economy and for travel.  Dr. Bellantoni will discuss their construction of fishing weirs located adjacent to the farm.

There will be tractor-drawn wagons available for people to ride back up the hill to the barn and parking area following the program.
