CHAPMAN FARM SITE & CEMETERY, West Haven
Depending on the weather, we will hike, snowshoe or ski from the Nature Conservancy Buckner Preserve trailhead at the Galick Farm across used and unused farm fields and through a little woods to a farm site overlooking Lake Champlain. We’ll walk down to a little cemetery near the shore, where some of the Chapmans are buried. It was rediscovered in a honeysuckle thicket by the preserve caretakers a couple years ago and restored by the Vt. Old Cemeteries Association in 2021. 4 miles round trip, with a total 400’ climb. If you want to carpool, please have your covid vaccines up to date.
