Size / 14
Trails / 10
Properties / 3

Two parcels off Old Road to Nine Acre Corner near the Concord Country Club and the Town’s Deaconess well site were donated to CLCT in 1961-1962. A parcel consisting of almost 11 acres was donated by Gladys Hosmer, and an additional 3 acres were donated by the J&E Company.

The loop trail that now runs through the Hosmer Land and Mattison Field represents a great example of partnerships. In 1998, CLCT joined with the Friends of the Mattison Field, local and state leaders and a national non-profit organization to preserve 43 acres of farm field. The land is now owned by the Town of Concord.
