Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “A great man is always willing to be little.” Seth and Lucy Holcombe, who donated 150 acres of land in North Granby to the Granby Land Trust in 2016, were great—and humble— people. They did not donate their land to the GLT in order to make others remember their names. But remember their names, we will.
The GLT recently installed a kiosk and sign at the trailhead (above) to the Seth and Lucy Holcombe Preserve trail system. The signage honors Seth and Lucy Holcombe for their generosity in donating 150 acres of land to the GLT. Located off of Silver Street in North Granby, this is a great place for a hike. Enjoy it and remember, with gratitude, the humble and generous people who decided to preserve this property forever.
