March 5: Eliot Historical Society meeting 7pm at John F. Hill Grange Hall, State Road. Eric Christian will share his fascinating research into what are termed "the Baylands" here in Eliot. This area of ledge and submerged island extending from Frank's Fort (by Green Acre) to Watt's Fort were laid out in 1682. Here cattle once grazed on the prized marsh grasses on what were the most fertile of pasture lands.
