 Hastings Landing


In October, the Mahoosuc Land Trust purchased a one acre parcel of land on the Androscoggin River at Rumford Center to use as a public river access site. The site will be known as Hastings Landing in honor of the Hasting Family that made a major donation toward the purchase of the land. The Hasting gift was in memory of Ann Hastings Morton, a lifelong resident of the area and former member of the Mahoosuc Land Trust Board of Directors. 

The Mahoosuc Land Trust and The Androscoggin River Watershed have applied to the Maine Water Access Fund for funding to construct a small parking area and steps to the River during the summer of 2015.

The purchase is part of the Land Trust’s long term vision of providing public river access spaces approximately five miles apart between Shelburne, NH and Rumford, ME. Our goal is to make the river accessible both to families looking for a one or two hour paddle as well as long distance canoeists and paddlers.
