Monson Museum to present "Abandoned Farm Experience"

GREATER SPRINGFIELD -- "Cellar Holes And Stone Walls: The Abandoned Farm Experience" with Dietrich Schlobohm will be presented on Sept. 5 at 1 p.m. at the Keep Homestead Museum, 35 Ely Rd., Monson.

Take a trip back in time and relive a part of New England's past. See weathered rows of stone walls, haunting cellar holes, proud old sugar maples, and overgrown roads leading to homes and lives long since vanished.

The guide, Schlobohm, is an environmental historian and Professor Emeritus from Springfield College.

Through the use of slides and commentary he will explore key forces of environmental change in the 19th and 20th centuries.

If time allows, there will be a walk through some of the Keep Homestead Museum property. This program will take place rain or shine.

Children age seven and older are welcome. There is no ad-mission charge for this program. Refreshments will be served.

The museum will be open from 1 to 3:30 p.m.
