Why are there stone walls in the woods?

Have your students ever observed apple trees and stone walls in the middle of the woods and wondered how they got there?

The Landscape History of Central New England, an exhibit of 7 dioramas that depicts 300 years of changes in the New England Landscape, would help them answer such questions.

Second image in the series depicting an early settler clearing a homestead in 1740.

New England Forests through Time displays all the dioramas in color with interpretive text. These images provide an opportunity for students to improve their visual thinking skills, apply their understandings about chronology, and connect history to the environment.
