Stone Carving Project
In 2017, artist Fly Freeman undertook the "Uxbridge Story in Stone" project, creating a massive stone carving that tells the story of the history of the town and the establishment of our trails. Selected by the Arts and Visual Enhancement Committee (AVEC), Freeman shaped the 800-lb blocks of Indiana Limestone using same type of hand-held tools that have been used by stone masons for generations.
The four completed limestone panels are installed in front of the Uxbridge municipal offices.
