Conway’s Historic Town Center

This spring the Franklin Land Trust accepted two conservation restrictions from Bill Sheehan and Katherine Robertson of Conway that protect the two small fields in Conway’s historic Pumpkin Hollow. More recently known as the epicenter of the February 2017 tornado touchdown, Pumpkin Hollow, located at the geographical heart of Conway, was historically the center of town with a church, school, store, inn, harness shop, and wagon shop.

Once the land was conserved the two parcels were sold to the respective neighbors to continue to be used for agriculture, gardening, wildlife habitat, wetland protection and of course forever protecting the iconic scenic views.
