In 2003, just 2 years after Coney Rock Preserve was established, Leonora Mullane offered her adjacent parcel to Joshua’s Trust at a bargain sale price. The preserve is named “proposal rock” because her father proposed to her mother at one of these boulders along Woodland Road.
Six years later, additional nearby land was protected, increasing the total acreage.
