The forest at Rollin Corner retains signs of its life as a 19th-century village, including the sites of both an early Methodist Church and the Parker Bit & Auger Shop. Near Wormwood Hill, stone foundations dot the wooded area. In the parcel’s northeastern corner, a series of vernal pools drain to an intermittent stream in the southwest. One of the parcel’s drainage areas flows under Wormwood Hill Road with little impact, while the other erodes a considerable channel and continues to deposit silt into the wetlands.
