Purdon Reservation


Features:

Natural amphitheater

History:

The original five acres of the Purdon Reservation was a gift to AVIS from Susanne Smith Purdon in 1964. In 2001, AVIS added on to the Purdon Reservation with the purchase of 4.4 acres of adjacent land from the Estate of Celia Kutz. In 1843, Purdon Reservation’s natural amphitheater was the site of a speech by Daniel Webster. To an audience of thousands, Webster spoke eloquently of his reunification with the Whig party and of the upcoming presidential campaign.
