Walden Pond State Preservation

The first Natural Historic Landmark in American history.

Walden Pond

Site of Henry David Thoreau's cabin. Sign says: "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life. And see if I could not learn what it had to teach and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." Thoreau
