A place for the geek in all of us.
It is free to walk to the Rock House Reservation, through the woods and to the site called Balance Rock. The formation is 30 feet high, and was a shelter for Native Americans, and travellers in centuries past. A farm was built around the rock house at one point, in the 18th century and that lasted for 125 years.
In the 19th century a rail was built near the property,and a descendent of the colonial owners built himself a little cabin there and even a pond. Today, visitors hike to the cabin, amid rocks and grass to see the view from the top. It is a beautiful place full of history.
