¹ Note that some landowners sold property to MLCT far below market value, so the "sale" was a combination of donation and sale.

NOTE: A 22-acre easement in Hilliardville (West Middle Turnpike to Adams Street) is not listed here as property. The easement was made on July 1, 2009 by the Purdy family.

The Manchester Land Conservation Trust, which was incorporated March 29, 1972, is a tax-exempt, publicly supported non-profit organization that works to acquire, preserve, and maintain open space lands and water resources. The Trust works through its Board of Directors, volunteers, and committees to encourage protection of animal, bird, and plant life within these natural surroundings, and to maintain the attractive character of our communities. All members are volunteers -- there is no paid staff.
