Roger Hersey, an Ausbon Sargent easement donor, died May 12, 2013 at age 64. The Hersey Farm in East Andover, NH, which had been purchased by his grandparents in 1904, was one of Roger’s special places. Roger and his cousin, Jerry, who owns the neighboring farm, worked together with the Andover Historical Society to list the Hersey Family Farms on the National Register of Historic Places, an honor which was achieved in 2008. Jerry placed his 268 acres of fields and forest land into a conservation easement with the Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust in 2007, and with Jerry’s encouragement and help, Roger began the process for a similar easement with Ausbon Sargent on his 55-acre farm. In November of 2010, this goal was achieved, thus ensuring that the picturesque open fields and scenic views of Roger’s farm would be protected forever.
