Hike Monument Mountain with Melville and Hawthorne
August 5, 2018 @ 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM
In partnership with The Trustees of Reservations and Gordon Hyatt, we will hike Monument Mountain to hear the story of Herman Melville and Nathaniel Hawthorne’s first meeting, in 1850. Hyatt will give a talk at the base of the Mountain. At the top of the mountain we will hear William Cullen Bryant’s poem about the Mountain and share a “champagne” toast! Wear sturdy shoes and bring water. Gather at the Monument Mountain Reservation parking lot.
