Whole Earth Center Donates $3,000 to Friends of Herrontown Woods

Herrontown & Whole Earth C 6:15

The Whole Earth Center in Princeton has donated $3,000 to the Friends of Herrontown Woods  for the restoration of public trails and the Veblen House.

Over the past two years,  Friends of Herrontown Woods volunteers have taken the lead in clearing trails that had become blocked by overgrowth and fallen trees in Herrontown Woods and Autumn Hill Reservation.

The donation will also help fund initial steps towards the restoration of the historic home, barn and cottage of Oswald Veblen. Veblen, an internationally known Princeton University mathematics professor instrumental in the founding of the Institute for Advanced Study, donated much of his land to Mercer County in 1957 to form the core of Herrontown Woods.

For more information, visit www.veblenhouse.org. Parking for a visit to Herrontown Woods is located on Snowden Lane across from the entrance to Smoyer Park in Princeton.

  • The way I see it, if he went and cleared blocked trails and made 200 acres of Princeton’s open space accessible to the public again, he can wear any shirt he wants.

  • I hope Kurt can use some of that $3,000 to buy a new shirt. What he is wearing in that photo is a shocker.
