Borderland was opened as a state park in 1971. Prior to that, it served as the country estate to the Ames family, who named it Borderland because it is on the border of Sharon and Easton. The family constructed the stone mansion in 1910. It is open to visitors for regularly scheduled guided tours in spring, summer, and fall. Hiking alongside water always makes an outing special, and Borderland has no fewer than 6 ponds to explore. The level walking trails at Borderland State Park lead to close-up views of ponds, fields, and forests.
