Crumbling foundations and miles of stone walls combine with wild forests and very picturesque waterfalls to make McLennan Reservation one of the best-kept secrets in the Berkshires. At the turn of the Twentieth Century Robb and Grace de Peyster Tytus owned this land. Their 1,500-acre estate-farm was especially noted for its superior maple syrup. Even today the numerous taps and lines that link the scores of roadside sugar maples attest to both the enduring tradition of sugaring and the value of sugar maples to the area.
