Lamentation Mountain State Park

Berlin’s Only State Park

Almost Lost 2.7 Acres to a

Trespassing and Encroaching Neighbor

Meriden Homestead II, LLC, Lamentation Mountain State Park’s southerly neighbor, requested and received initial approval for the conveyance, or sale of 2.7 acres of state land.


If this sale of this land had been granted by the state legislature, the encroaching individuals would have been rewarded for their illegal encroachment. It made absolutely no sense to set this precedent.

The Berlin Land Trust strongly opposed

 the sale of 2.7 acres of park land to Meriden Homestead II, LLC.  

Many thanks to all who contacted their state legislators and the Governor to express their opposition to the sale of this critically important park land. Lamentation Mountain State Park is Berlin's only state park.

Here are the documents submitted to the state by Meriden Homestead II, LLC :
