The Community Preservation Committee (CPC) funded stone wall restoration project at Pageant Field on Hildreth Street is underway. Dave Tibbetts, of New England Landscape Design, is a stone mason who is doing the work. Dave is on the left in the picture. For this WCT project, several hundred feet of the wall is scheduled to be repaired and rebuilt to look as it did historically at the time of the Westford 200th Anniversary Pageant there in 1929. The trust mission to preserve and protect open space and natural resources also includes historic sites.
The photos are an example of what has been accomplished so far this year. A double treatment for poison ivy control and brush trimming was necessary last fall before the actual wall restoration effort could start.
