Many years ago, Barbara Roby's parents placed a conservation easement with the Forest Society on a large parcel of land in East Andover. It has long been Barbara and David Roby's intention to protect their 41.98-acre property that lies across Route 11 from her parent's acreage. The Roby's chose to gift this land to Ausbon Sargent.
The Roby Preserve has approximately 1,800 feet of road frontage along NH Route 11 and over 1,700 feet of frontage along the Northern Rail Trail. The property will be open to the public for low-impact pedestrian access. It is also adjacent to Ausbon Sargent's McLeod Preserve and near over 2,400 acres of conserved land. The conservation of this property protects valuable water resources, including wetlands, and wildlife habitat.
