Inscription.  The trail segment you are on traverses the heart of Keene's post Civil War industrial activity. Some of the industries still present such as J.A. Wright & Co. date many years back in Keene's history. Many of the buildings, which can be seen along the trail date to the 1800's and have an industrial origin. These buildings have housed a succession of industrial and manufacturing enterprises. The diverse products manufactured here included among many others woolens, bicycles, shoes, furniture, automobiles and silverware. Some of the buildings now contain modern industrial facilities. Creative redevelopment of these historical structures has diversified their uses to include housing, retail sales, recreation and office facilities.
