Welcome to Rauscher Farm!
Enjoy the beauty and serenity of 60 acres of open space purchased by the Town of Clinton in June 2008.
Rauscher Farm comprises wonderfully diverse environments - grasslands, wetlands, woodlands, and access to Clamshell Pond - each with its store of rich ecological treasures.
Before the town purchase, Rauscher Farm was a working, commercial farm. Historical records show that as early as 1716 colonial settlers were on the farm. In 1653, a purchase of land from the Nashaway Nipmuc Indians included the Rauscher Farm area. And dating back further, prehistoric sites abound throughout the Clamshell Pond area. To learn more of its history, an archeological survey is planned for Rauscher Farm.
