Quotes
" In the 1930s, Olivia Cutting James and a group of conservation-minded friends purchased seven parcels comprising Tyringham Cobble and its surrounding pastures to protect it from development (A ski run had been proposed). Calling themselves "The Cobblers," they set up an informal association as tenants in common. In her 1961 will, Mrs. James left The Trustees an endowment to maintain the Cobble, and expressed the "earnest hope" that the surviving tenants would give the property to The Trustees as a gift, which they did in 1963.
