The Albert F. Norris Reservation was created in 1970, when Eleanor A. Norris donated 99 acres to the Trustees of Reservations in memory of her husband, Albert, who died in 1962. Donations in the 1980s by Richard K. McMullan, Caroline McMullan Burke, A. Dale McMullan, and Ralph and Elizabeth Gordon, increased the size to 129 acres. It features two miles of trails along the North River, a former mill pond, a boardwalk, and a forest. Norris died at age 100 last Nov. 23 and is buried next to her husband in the cemetery by First Parish Unitarian Church of Norwell.
