Lead Mills has been transformed from an 18th and 19th century industrial site to a lovely meadow with spectacular views of the Salem Harbor and trails that cross the open fields.  During Conservancy sponsored Earth Day activities, a small army of volunteers have helped further transform the fields of weeds to oceans of wildflowers.

Enjoy this site’s openness, then venture to the adjoining beach and glade at Harbor Glade and enjoy the woodland trails in adjacent Wyman Woods via connecting trails from Lead Mills.
