Kimberly Tract
This land is part of the original grant east of the great river made to John Robbins of Wethersfield in 1640. The original lot of 132 acres – 22 rods wide – extended three miles from the river into the hills. With Eleazar Kimberly’s marriage to Ruth Robbins in 1677, this property remained in the Kimberly family for a century. In 1950 the Kimberly Tract became the last of the original land grants to be divided. In 1969 this land was acquired by the town as open space from heirs of Helen W. Lambert, 5th generation descendants of Eleazar Kimberly.
