This Week’s Take-Your-Own Trail Walk: Harvard Pond and Two Brothers Rocks, by Mark Weinstein
October 21 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until October 21, 2020
The Bedford Historical Society (see: https://www.thebedfordcitizen.org/2012/12/the-two-brothers-rocks/) says: “Bedford is the site of one of the oldest inland landmarks in the United States. Governor John Winthrop and Deputy Governor Thomas Dudley . . chose these two boulders on the east band as the boundary and named them the “Two Brothers” after themselves because they considered themselves brothers by the marriage of Dudley’s son to Winthrop’s daughter. In 1894, the newly founded Bedford Historical Society had the words “Winthrop 1638” and “Dudley 1638” carved on the Rocks. The site of the Two Brothers is now part of the National Wildlife Refuge . . .”
