Pomfret

Theodore Gellert made a gift of this land in December 2007.  The Gellert Preserve is composed of three adjacent lots of farm land on Ayers Road at Easter Hill which has an elevation of over 700 feet. The Air Line Trail abuts the eastern parcel to the north and the 52 acre parcel abuts the WLT Valentine Preserve. The combined four lots total 168 acres of protected land. Trails have yet to be marked. An old shooting range was situated near the entrance on Ayers Road. Warning signs have been removed that were still there (September 2015) by the gate just past the pond. It is possible to view this area from the Airline trail and there is access onto the Airline Park on Brooklyn Road.
