Hacker's Hill Preserve

Support this blog by using this Amazon Link

I had a wonderful visit with family at Coffee Pond in Casco, Maine. My cousin's husband introduced me to Hacker's Hill Preserve which was just a short drive from their home. This hill affords a 360 degree view of the foothills of the Appalachian Range and Lake Sebago. It is a popular spot for picnicking.

You can drive to the top of the hill

There is a chapel on the hill and at the base of a statue are a number of memorial artifacts

Looking up at the peak of the hill. The cell towers provide revenue to maintain the preserve

A view from an arbor which often hosts weddings

I am confused since the "well" is not really a well

The three crosses

The statue (detail)


What a view

The folks were walking their Dogue de Bordeaux
