Popular Trail on Isinglass River to be Conserved
With 4,900 feet of shoreline, one could say the Barr Property hugs the Isinglass River. And with one mile of the Barrington Trail, Town residents have embraced the Barr land as well. The late owner Colonel John Barr was one of the founders of the Barrington Trail, and “would be delighted to know that this portion of the trail will always be open for the public’s enjoyment,” explains John Wallace, Chair of the Barrington Conservation Commission. The Isinglass River was recognized by the State Legislature in 2002 for its outstanding natural and cultural resources and is an model example of a native fish community in the state. Funding for this easement purchase was secured in part from LCHIP, NH Department of Environmental Service’s Aquatic Resource Mitigation Fund, and the Town of Barrington Conservation Fund.
