Little River Mill History and Nature Walk
October 15 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This is a collaboration between the Charlton Heritage Preservation Trust and the Charlton Historical Society. Local historian Frank Morrill will lead a discussion of local mills and mill life prior to industrialization. This will take place at the Trust’s Little River property https://www.charltontrust.org/littleriver.htm at the north end of Buffumville Lake, starting at the parking lot off Fulling Mill Drive. Hike options include a 1.5 mile loop along the river through mill ruins, a 3 mile hike around the north half of the lake or a 7 mile hike around the entire lake. The Midstate trial is adjacent to the Trust’s trial and can be followed to the somewhat famous cow tunnel under Route 20.
