The Leeds Historical Society’s final scheduled spring walk is scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday, May 1, to explore a portion of the Leeds section (330 acres) of the Androscoggin Riverlands State Park. A private land owner has given access to the Riverlands through his property.

Walkers are asked to meet on Church Hill Road. From Leeds Center, it’s about 3 miles on the road, and from Turner bridge, it’s about 2 miles up the the road towards Leeds. It’s along the lowest point of the road; park in a small turnout or along the road.

This area was affected by the Gulf Island Dam and still has foundations to a number of homes and the remnants of the old River Road. Society members will talk about one of the better known people whose family settled here: Julia Griswold Berry, the hermit of Griswold Island.

Ticks are abundant, so protection is advised. People can bring a mask if they wish. Rain dates and time for all of the walks are on the following day, Sundays at 1 p.m.

Additionally, the society will be at the history center in the Old Leeds Town House on Route 106 in Leeds Center from 9 to 11 a.m. the second Saturday of the month through October. People can see the renovations, visit with society members, and look at items from the collection.
