Description: BLT played a pivotal role in the protection of this 7.1-acre parcel, which is located at the northern end of the scenic backdrop of the Mill Pond in Marstons Mills. The land was part of The Marstons Mills River resource protection project partially because the river and its herring run through the pond. The land also falls in the zone of contribution to the public water supply. BLT negotiated a purchase and sales agreement; the land was then purchased by the Town with Land Bank funds. BLT holds a conservation restriction to permanently protect the land.
