This is a nice piece of property located between Interstate 295, Stump Pond, and residential areas. It has classic glacial moraine topography and geology. We found the Mercer Overlook, the World War II memorial at a plane crash site, the Ken Weber memorial plaque, and a canoe/kayak launch on Stump Pond.
