Williams Property Advisory Committee
The Williams Property, a 300 acres parcel (with entrance located off County Road) was gifted to the Town of Shapleigh in 2011 from Roger K. Williams.
The property hosts walking trails and open fields for all to enjoy.  Great for a family hike in the woods on well-maintained trails or perhaps a picnic and kite flying in the field.  Dogs are welcome on leash and must be picked up after.
