For over 180 years, stone walls have quietly defined Woodlawn’s boundaries. Measuring approximately a mile and half long, their grace and beauty are testament to a traditional New England craft while quietly reminding us of the estate’s agricultural roots. The dry-laid fieldstone walls can be traced to Col. John Black’s use of Woodlawn as a gentleman’s farm, most likely built as fields were cleared for cultivation. Woodlawn has recently begun a project restore the stone walls.
