The Trustees of Reservations is undertaking a $6 million project to rejuvenate Long Hill in Beverly. Plans include opening the historic house to the public for the first time, hosting music and theater performances in a newly created garden space, and transforming a farmhouse and barn into a new horticultural learning center for classes and talks on gardening.
We check in on this year’s State of the Coast report, detailing the climate crisis facing Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. The major takeaway: things are bad. Possibly even worse than we previously thought. We hear from Tom O’Shea, Managing Director of Resources and Planning for The Trustees of Reservations and one of the report’s authors.
The Trustees of Reservations, a 130-year-old nonprofit organization, oversees 120 properties across the state of Massachusetts. All of them are open to the public. President and CEO Jocelyn Forbush shares the ways in which The Trustees conserves not only land but also cultural identity, and how the two are entwined.
The Stockbridge-Munsee Community now has a five-year agreement with the Trustees to tell its story through the Mission House exhibit, said Bonney Hartley, historic preservation manager for the tribe. “The whole exhibit is told in our own voice so we have a footprint on Main Street again.”

“Whether you stick to the 4.5 miles of undulating trails, linger near the marsh, or explore the cedar woods and ice pond at Rocky Neck, don’t miss the remarkable panoramic view from atop Planter’s Hill. This feels like a prize: Look northwest, past the Boston harbor and islands to the city’s signature skyline, or east, beyond the Weir River and chockablock beach houses of Nantasket to the ocean. No doubt you will leave World’s End feeling renewed, as Frederick Law Olmsted intended.”
