Conserving Berlin


The Berlin Conservation Commission has voted to buy an almost four-acre parcel off Crosby Road for $20,000 and has accepted another 10 acres as a gift.

David Rosemarin, a former Berlin resident who now lives in Harvard, agreed to sell his property of mostly wetlands to the commission, Chairman Walter Bickford said. The land borders North Brook, which Bickford said makes it ecologically important. Money from the town’s Solomon Pond Mall fund will be used to make the purchase.

The commission will also take ownership of 10 acres in Hog Swamp off Sawyer Hill Road that was donated by Barbara O’Brien, widow of former Berlin Orchards owner Barry O’Brien, Bickford said. Lawyers are still working out the details of both transactions, he said.
