CCT Properties

The Trust preserves and protects open space by (a) owning a property outright, or (b) obtaining and holding a conservation or deed restriction on a property.

The Trust's holdings* comprise over 130 acres of shoreline along Cohasset Harbor, the Gulf River, the Atlantic Ocean, Lily Pond, Straits Pond and Bound Brook, as well as upland forest, meadowlands and wetlands in Cohasset, Scituate and Hull. 

Land held by the Trust is generally open to the public but the use of individual parcels is governed both by the nature of the land and the wishes of the donors. Some parcels lend themselves to recreational use, while public access to others may be limited, and still others may be restricted to wildlife habitat or watershed protection. We appreciate your cooperation in abiding by any posted restrictions.

The CCT holds a Conservation Restriction (CR) on a 32-acre town-owned parcel known as the Barnes Wildlife Sanctuary, a 9-acre town-owned parcel near Peppermint Brook, and a deed restriction on the Olde Salt House on Cohasset Harbor.

The CCT contributed financially to the purchase of:
          - over 100 acres of land (Brass Kettle Conservation Area) to protect
           Cohasset's drinking water supply;
          - 32 acres of land adjacent to Wheelwright Park (Barnes Wildlife Sanctuary)
           to protect deep woods core habitat; and
          - 63 acres of land on Turkey Hill as part of a collaboration between The Trustees
           of the Reservations and the Towns of Hingham and Cohasset.

The Trust's purchase of 22 acres (Ingram Park) of a larger parcel enabled the Cohasset Land Foundation to purchase of 35 acres of open space owned by Ozzie Ingram.
