With so much history in New Hampshire, it’s easy to take a moment and think about all that came before us. While museums and storytellers are wonderful, we’ve found that some of the most interesting history resides within the forest. The land itself is one of the best storytellers in the world and, by listening and watching, we can learn so much about what life was like before we were here. It might be hard to believe, but some of the state’s oldest and most interesting history can be seen in one particular forest where old growth trees stand tall and proud.
Getting to Sheldrick Forest Preserve isn’t hard. Start from the town of Milford and head west on Route 101. You’ll pass the center of Wilton. Turn left on Temple Road just after Gary’s Harvest Restaurant and continue heading down Temple Road for just over a quarter of a mile before bearing left to cross a bridge. Next turn left onto Town Farm Road. Drive for another 3/4 of a mile and you’ll reach the preserve entrance. Parking is in a small field on the left.
