Owned for many years by the Stanley Tool Company, this land once supplied timber for the manufacture of handles for hammers, axes, and other hand tools. The 7,536 acre property consists of two adjacent parcels in Chittenden, Pittsfield and Killington, which abut the Green Mountain National Forest. Thanks to the leadership of Senator Patrick Leahy and the Vermont Congressional delegation, Congress appropriated roughly $3.3 million for this purchase from the Land and Water Conservation Fund to add the property to the Green Mountain National Forest.
