Summary

Significance: The result of Frederick Billings's efforts was a network of carriage roads giving access to the estate for utilitarian purposes, as well as providing a pleasurable encounter with the landscape. Traveling along the roads, riders could see reforestation in progress, picturesque vistas, and the reward of the view from the top of Mount Tom. The good stewardship of Billings' descendants allowed this model nineteenth century landscape to survive, with minor modifications that reflect changes in land use.
