Are you a frequent hiker on the pond trail at Weir Farm National Historic Site? Take a closer look. On Sunday, August 19th at 1:00 p.m., join a park ranger for a new perspective on this popular local trail. Explore the ways people have shaped their natural environment, and discover sights that often go unnoticed – ones which you may have passed several times and never thought to consider. J. Alden Weir and the generations of artists who followed him left traces of their time at Weir Farm National Historic Site, and even as nature begins to reclaim what was once rolling farmland, you can still find remnants of the past hidden along the Pond Trail.
* The hike will be approximately one mile in length across relatively flat ground, but will require walking on some narrow, stony paths. Please bring a water bottle and appropriate footwear. There is no fee to participate, but registration is required. To register or for more information, please call (203) 834-1896 x12.
Weir Farm National Historic Site, the only National Park Service site dedicated to American painting, was home to three generations of American artists including Julian Alden Weir, a leading figure in American art and the development of American Impressionism. Today, the 60-acre park, which includes the Weir House, Weir and Young Studios, barns, gardens, and Weir Pond, is one of the nation’s finest remaining landscapes of American art.
