A very special place…as told by hike leader Karen….This was a really great hike today, that was very close to my heart. Blueberry Hill in West Granville, was The Blueberry Lot to my family as kids. My aunt and uncle, Steve and Gladys Roberts, owned this land in the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s. Not sure how far back they owned it. I know my Mom lived with them from age 12/13, so that would be mid 40’s through 1954 when my Mom married my Dad. My Mom worked on blueberries, cleaning them. My Dad said he scooped blueberries and also went and helped Uncle Steve burn the bushes. That incredible rock ledge is what I remember most as a kid.
