Description

 

RLHT purchased this 280-acre property in 2001.  It consists primarily of forested land interspersed with rolling fields and meadows. 

Evidence of  its agricultural history can be found in the form of stone walls, wire fencing and crumbling livestock watering wells.  With over a 1/2 mile of frontage on Rangeley Lake, the property provides diverse habitat for song birds, wading birds, amphibians, beaver, bear, deer and moose.  In late summer, the fields produce wildflowers and berries enjoyed by hikers and other wildlife.
