Comments
Comments: Maxfield Monument is a cool little place to go and explore. It's a piece of history that many don't know about. It's an easy hike and it you include going down to the marsh, it is about a 3 mile total hike. There are cellar hole remains of 2 families, the Maxfield (112 acres farm with apple orchard) and the Abbott's along with 2 family cemeteries. The Monument is located in the Maxfield cemetery. When William Maxfield died, he left most everything he owned to the town of Loudon and they agreed to never sell the property and to maintain the cemetery. If you have ever been to the Loudon Public Library, the Maxfield Library, you can thank William, he left money to have that built too.
