    Who Owns the Cow??? Notice the barren hill side. Not a tree in sight. I believe they cut the trees for fuel in those days…

    Plus, like the Annisquam pasture, it was grazing land, and so the overgrowth was kept in check. It’s interesting that New England is now far more heavily forested than it was even as recently as 1900.

    The Babson family’s farm grazed their cows here. They owned most of the Common’s land at the time.
