Repairs to the northern abutment of the 1930 High Arch Bridge are complete! Many thanks to the skilled crew from Forgotten Stoneworks and to the Elsie Viles Foundation, the Bangor Savings Bank Foundation and the hundreds of community donors who made this important work possible! We’re now working to raise the money for repairs to the southern abutment, which will hopefully take place in 2018. Learn more about the Bridges Restoration Project.

Thanks to a grant from the Ed Meadows Conservation Fund, new interpretive kiosk signs have been installed at both the Hallowell and Farmingdale trailheads. Be sure to stop and learn more about Vaughan Woods’ history next time you take a walk!
