Eric Sloane and New England Stone

The Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum is pleased to announce that much of the events and activities for 2015 have been established.  Please check with us often to view updates concerning specific events.  We will be assisting once again with the annual art show and sale in July – this year local artisans will be asked to create works of art that incorporate stone.  The Friends are also very excited to announce our first hands on course – traditional New England stone wall building, tentatively scheduled for May and July.  Stay tuned!

My favorite New England stone wall of all time.  This wall cuts through a field for many hundreds of yards.  Notice the alternating layers of flat, smaller stones with a band of round ones.  The lower photo reveals that there are three such courses along the entire length of the wall.  The wall terminates in the lower photo as there is a long-abandoned access point to the fields beyond at this point.
