After your tour, be sure to spend some time at John Burroughs Memorial Field State Historic Site a pleasant walk (or a short drive) up the road. An outdoor exhibit recounts highlights of Burroughs’ life and work. A marked path takes you to his burial place where you can sit on a rustic bench, or on the stone wall surrounding his grave, to drink in the wonderful view and savor the silence. John spent much time here in his youth, day-dreaming atop a boulder deposited by a glacier eons ago. Known as Boyhood Rock, it now marks his resting place, visited by pilgrims from all over the world.
