Sprague Land Preserve
Parking: Small lots past 154 Holton Rd North Franklin, CT
“Work with property owners, State, Friends of Shetucket, and others to acquire additional open space parcels and/or conservation easements along the Shetucket River with the goal to create a trail from Baltic Village to the Sprague Land Preserve that includes handicapped access, exercise equipment, art, education, parking, and river access.”
The original 270 Mukluk Preserve was purchased in 2005. The 230-acre Watson Farm property was purchased in 2012 and the 125-acre Robinson property was added in 2016. The property has been used for many things since the early 1700’s so it is a wealth of historic and cultural artifacts, including stagecoach roads, tavern and barn foundations, ice ponds, etc.
