MAGALLOWAY PLANTATION — Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust received a phone call regarding a parcel of land for sale on the Magalloway River recently.  After years of being on the market, the trust has entered in a purchase and sale contract to acquire Mailbox Pool.

By acquiring the parcel, the trust will conserve access to the region’s prime brook trout and salmon fly-fishing pool, while simultaneously preserving a critical deer yard otherwise subject to development.

The trust is seeking support in this unplanned acquisition project.

There was a substantial reduction from $105,000 to a signed contract of $68,000. However, the trust will have to raise funds to pay for the landmark for the benefit of the community. 

Visit ConserveWith.Us to learn details about the property and track the project’s progress. Donations can be made online or mailed to Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust at P.O. Box 249, Oquossoc, ME 04964.  Put “Mailbox Pool” in the memo.
