PS - Do woo like history? Her's a bit about the farm lands:
In the Settlement era, the Mount Hope Lands, comprised of Mount Hope and Poppasquash Necks, belonged to King Philip, Sachem of the Wampanoags. After his death in the “miry swamp” at the foot of Mount Hope in 1676, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts Bay Colony and Rhode Island all claimed this prized territory. By a royal grant, King Charles II of England awarded the land to Plymouth Colony on January 12, 1680. On September 14, 1680, the Mount Hope Lands, totaling 7,000 acres were sold to John Walley, Nathaniel Byfield, Stephen Burton and Nathaniel Oliver, four wealthy Boston merchants, for 1100 pounds.
Do woo remember our walk in January at Weetamoo Park? Turns out she was King Phillip's sister-in-law!
