An iconic mountaintop with stunning views of the Connecticut River, Monandnock Mountain in Lemington was the crown jewel of a land deal where TPL acquired 14 separate parcels in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom from International Paper Realty Corporation. Using federal Forest Legacy Program funds, TPL was able to permanently conserve this 1,471-acre mountaintop in 2005 and convey it to the Town of Lemington for public to enjoy in perpetuity.
