Thoreau’s Flint: The Pond and the Farmer

This event last occurred on October 12, 2017, 6:30—8:30 pm.

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 deCordova’s neighboring Flint’s Pond. “A walk through the woods thither was often my recreation,” he wrote in Walden.

In conjunction with fall exhibition Bodies in Water, join world renowned Thoreau scholar Jeffrey S. Cramer, Curator of Collections at The Walden Woods Project’s Thoreau Institute Library, 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 organized in conjunction with the 2017 world-wide Thoreau Bicentennial celebration and co-sponsored by The Walden Woods Project.

This event is free but registration is requested.
