Providence Journal

Walls like this are under constant threat.

The Memorial Day Weekend (May 24, 2009 ) issue of the Providence Sunday Journal published a front page feature story by staff writer Tom Mooney and with photos by John Freidah. Beneath the headline was “With Laswuiits and statutes, people are recognizing the historical value of the ubiquitous New England icons, ” which more or less says it all. The story described conservation developments in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. For a local story, the Guilford Courier (CT), published a May 21 story by Fay Abrahamsson titled “Markers of History: GPA Moves to Preserve Stone Walls.” This documented work by the Guilford Preservation Alliance.
