The 22nd anniversary of the establishment of Weir Farm National Historic Site as the 354th unit in the National Park system will be celebrated Sunday, Oct. 28, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. when, as part of a walk, Park Ranger Andrew Lowe describes the steps and requirements to create a national park and discusses the future of the National Park Service.
“We look forward to your participation in this engaging conversation because your parks need your ideas!” said Mr. Lowe.
“Join us after the tour for cake, sparkling cider, and a celebratory toast to the establishment of Weir Farm National Historic Site.”
In June of 1882, painter J. Alden Weir boarded a train from New York bound for his farm among the hills of Branchville. Once here, he and his family transformed their summer retreat into a creative refuge for friends and fellow artists. After Weir, artists Mahonri Young and Sperry Andrews lived and worked here.
The event is free, but registration is required and space is limited.
