In 1964, the land that had been used for the mink farm was sold to the Norwich School District, along with twenty more acres bought from Josiah Huntley and his son James, to build a high school. However, as Norwich students were attending Hanover High School instead, the school district donated the twenty-seven acres to the town for the recreational area that we enjoy today.
