McGee Farm & Forest

 Ted and Lois McGee.

Ted and Lois McGee.

The late Edward (Ted) and Lois McGee conserved 60 acres of hayfield and woods on North Road in Lancaster. The property is across the road from their family farm. The McGees wanted to conserve the property so their five children and grandchildren would always have a place to call home. The family will continue to use the land for walking, wildlife watching, cutting wood, and haying. The woods attract songbirds, grouse, and lots of turkeys! The property is adjacent to another conserved property, making a larger tract of protected forest. These lands are prominent from vantage points along NH Scenic Byway Route 2 across the valley of the Israel’s River. Thanks to the generosity of Ted and Lois and their vision for the rural character of Lancaster into the future! We also thank the Lancaster Conservation Commission and a private donor for helping make the project happen.Edward (Ted) and Lois McGee conserved 60 acres of hayfield and woodlot on North Road in Lancaster.
