Preserving Horizons Update

The next big hurdle for this project is to secure support from the town of Wilton. On March 13, Wilton residents will gather for Town Meeting at Florence Rideout Elementary School where they will vote on warrant articles and other town matters.

If you are a Wilton resident, your presence at this meeting and support for Warrant Article 13 is vital. A vote for Warrant Article 13, which would raise $80,000 towards the cost of the conservation easements on the 160 acres, is a vote for conserving prime forest and farmland.

For me, the return of the eagle (coincidently, on the anniversary of my father’s birth) has personal significance related to my father’s death three years ago. My beloved father, a Native American Cree, was on his death bed surrounded by family in our summer retreat cabin on a lagoon by the Eagle River in …

Stories from the Fire

In the early morning of January 18, 1970, much of High Mowing School burned to the ground. But the stories from the aftermath of the fire, as remembered by Mrs. Emmet in From Farm to School, do not only paint a picture of loss. There are also many stories of hope and resilience from that night, and more still from the days and months that followed. Here are just a few.

The Lamb

Mrs. Emmet and many of the students gathered across campus in the home of Frank Waterman, a faculty member at the time. As the old houses and the connecting strip of barn continued to burn, those gathered waited for …
