Mrs. Bessie Phillips also granted an easement for 43.1 acres of forests and open fields on the east side of Burpee Hill Road. Combining the acreage of four other easements, Mrs. Phillips protected a total of 175.5 acres of open fields and forest with over one-half mile of roadside stonewalls, lined with lovely sugar maples visible to the general public. The 43.1 acre parcel abuts 64.5 acres of protected land owned by the Stanley Farm Association. Forestry and agricultural activities are permitted.
At her death in 4/96, Mrs. Bessie Phillips' daughter, Jane, inherited this property. Peter and Debbie Stanley purchased the "Gray Cottage" lot in December of 2004.
