Directions

In May of 2003, Grafton voters approved the purchase of the 47-acre Hennessey property for $1.1 million from Robert N. Hennessy.  This parcel is bounded by the Massachusetts Turnpike on the North, Old Westboro Road on the West, and Estabrook Road (classified as a 'scenic road') on the South.  It is currently a series of open farm meadows enclosed by old New England stone walls and stands of emerging growth vegetation (small caliper trees and moderately sized shrubs) located around the meadow's perimeter.

A stream traverses the property, beginning at the Northeastern corner at a large wetland area, flowing in an approximately southwesterly direction through the center of the parcel.  Some rock outcrops are also visible in several meadows in the Western portion o f the site.
