An interesting find by Karen on the way home from hiking the Huckleberry Trolley Line in Otis. On North Blandford Rd, a monument sits honoring Samuel Cross on the place where he died 1854. This was the first route and turnpike to Lee from the Settlement of Blandford and the entire route contains settler history.
