This parcel is referred to as “Storr’s Wood Lot” on old documents dating to about 1843. Although Gallup Preserve is landlocked and is not accessible to the public, together with the Townsend Preserves it is in a strategic location abutted by Nature Conservancy, Windham 4-H and State of Connecticut forests; almost 1,000 acres of protected land creating a wild life corridor and habitat of major importance.

The 7.9 acre Gallup parcel was given by Elinor Bauer, Evelyn Murdock, and Mary Page in memory of their parents, the late Ada S. and Arthur M. Gallup.
