Turtle Rock Park at Historic Stirling
Time & Location
About The Event
More than a century ago, prominent businessman Herbert Gray Torrey designed a train depot and park nestled in the small industrial village of Stirling resplendent with botanical plantings and a fountain. Unrelated, but nearby, was the Cooper family burial grounds that included the grave of Revolutionary War Captain Peter Layton.
