Green Mountain Academy welcomes John Delano of the University of Albany to talk about the stone walls of New England. Stone walls are an enduring testimony to the strenuous labors and strong work ethic of subsistence farmers who toiled for generations on 100-acre lots.

Modern airborne surveys reveal the vast extent of these stone walls in New England, as well as other interesting aspects of the land.
