A while back I took a book out of Wellesley Free Library called “The Geological Story of Wellesley” (Revised in 1984). The cover, shown here, features an impressive boulder that’s described as sitting atop Peirce Hill, the highest point in town at 337 feet.
So I went looking for the big rock, finding Peirce Hill off of Monadnock Road and through a foreboding metal gate. But as far as I can tell, the boulder is no longer there. Does anyone know what became of it?
The hill now features some nice wildflowers, a few water tanks (I think connected to the nearby reservoir), a couple of metal structures decorated with graffiti and a couple of poles with antennas on them.
