Cathedral Pines is a 42-acre old-growth white pine and hemlock forest preserve. It is owned and managed by the Nature Conservancy in Cornwall, Connecticut, and was originally part of a 1000-acre forest inherited by Major Seth Pierce in 1785, when the trees were but saplings. It passed on to John E. Calhoun, who vowed to preserve the entire area as a majestic forest.
