The Litchfield Land Trust expanded its holdings on Monday when it forged an agreement with the Daughters of Wisdom giving the land trust a conservation easement on 54 aces of property at Wisdom House Retreat and Conference Center.
Land trust President David Geiger and Daughters of Wisdom representatives Sisters Cathy Sheehan and Evelyn Eckhardt signed the easement under the guidance of Attorney Peter Ebersol, a member of the land trust.
The easement gives the land trust stewardship of the 54 acres and means they will remain undeveloped in perpetuity. The total acreage at Wisdom House is 74.
