Women's Heritage TrailGenerations of Waln/Meirs women helped to build and sustain the farm, mill and domestic life at Walnford and to ensure its ultimate survival. Sarah Ridgeway Waln and her daughter Sarah Waln were among a small but noteworthy group of women who owned property and managed farms and businesses in the 19th century. For decades they oversaw the work of the mills and farm, rebuilt the grist mill after a fire, and invested in new buildings and improvements. With an interest in preserving their family's heritage, Anne Weightman Meirs worked with her husband Richard Waln Meirs to rejuvenate Walnford in the early 20th century, restoring the buildings and grounds in the Colonial Revival style.
