Upton State Forest: A History

Early Settlers

Thirty years ago there were stone columns that supported this barn standing within the cellar hole. Today they are on the ground but you can still see them if you look carefully.

There are cellar holes located on many Upton State Forest Trails. The stone walls and cellar holes of homes, barns and outbuildings are the remains of early settlement.
