Pierce Brook Forest is a 661-acre contiguous tract of forestland, owned and carefully managed for the past 20 years with long-term stewardship and wildlife management in mind. The property is located in the quiet, rural town of Acworth, New Hampshire in the southwest region of the state near the New Hampshire/Vermont line.
In addition to a well-stocked and diverse timber resource, the property offers open fields, wetlands, brook frontage, numerous vernal pools, and 2.75 miles of well-maintained interior historic roads and 3-plus miles of recreational trails. Like so many New England lands, stone walls, 19th-century cellar holes, and even a small cemetery are found throughout.
A 24×30-foot post-and-beam barn and 10×15-foot “Thoreau cabin” are also included in the sale. The Town of Acworth holds a conservation easement on approximately 80 percent of the land with approximately 131 acres and 1,200 feet of public road frontage excluded from the easement area.
Your own private nature and wildlife retreat awaits, located approximately two hours from Boston and just over an hour from Concord, New Hampshire and Rutland, Vermont.
