  • May 4, 2019
    7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join Master Craftsmen Jared Flynn and Brian Post on a guided tour through the stone walls at The Stone Trust Training Center and Master Features Park at Scott Farm.  There are over 5000 sq ft of walls and features to see and learn about.  The Stone Trust has the only permanent indoor dry stone wall training facility in North America.  Outdoors in the Master Features Park there are dozens of sections of walls to see built in different styles, and with varying stone types.

Learn about the purpose of the walls and features, and how many of them fit into the training and certification done at The Stone Trust.  You will never look at stone walls gain the same way.

The tour will begin at 6:30pm Saturday May 4th at Scott Farm, home of The Stone Trust.  It will last about 45 minutes.  Wear footwear suitable for walking on grass and gravel.  Follow the signs on site for parking and the tour starting point.

The tour is free and open to the public.  After the tour join us for a special presentation:  Sermons in Stone: The Stone Walls of New England and New York by Susan Allport from 7:30 – 8:30.  Susan is the author of the book by the same name, and this is the first time she will be presenting at The Stone Trust.
