Allen ‘A’ Preserve

Hersey, or Tyler, Brook
Hersey, or Tyler, Brook

Encompassing 13 acres, this parcel is a part of what was once the Allen ‘A’ Resort on Route 28 in Wolfeboro. Linda Baldwin’s Single Rose LLC acquired this property in 1999 as part of a 45.4-acre purchase. Linda bought the property to prevent the development of a 400+ unit RV park on this environmentally sensitive land. The Wentworth Watershed Association (then known as the Lake Wentworth Foundation)  acquired the land after Linda’s death in 2002.

Both Harvey and Hersey (Tyler) Brooks run through this property, and much of its acreage is wetland. Both the former Allen ‘A’ theater building and the Allen A’s tennis courts sit on the original parcel. In 2005, the Association sold the portion containing these structures to the New Hampshire Boat Museum. The Association retained a conservation easement on the wetland portions of museum land. The piece of the original parcel that was retained has frontage on Route 28, Moose Point Road, Albee Beach Road, and the TRAC Cotton Valley Trail.

The Association intends to retain this environmentally critical property and maintain it in its natural, undeveloped state.
