Henry David Thoreau, as he liked to say, “traveled a good deal in Concord.” But he also traveled quite a bit in Lincoln, including to Flint’s Pond, which neighbors what is now deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum. “A walk through the woods thither was often my recreation,” he wrote in Walden.

Join The Walden Woods Project’s Curator of Collections and resident Thoreau scholar, Jeffrey S. Cramer, for a rooftop evening learning about the truths and myths around Henry David Thoreau’s other pond, and the “unclean and stupid farmer” who lived there.

This program is co-sponsored by deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, as part of the world-wide Thoreau Bicentennial celebration.

This event is free but registration is requested, here.
