Leakin Park, rife with its mysterious dark history and haunting intrigue, is filled with artifacts,and the flotsam and jetsam of yesteryear. The park played host to a wealthy Winan family's Crimea estate, several mills, the Mt. Holly Inn, an old trolley line, two cemeteries, a Bollman Truss bridge, and the home of the Dr. Jesse William Lazear, who cured yellow fever. If you want to spend an afternoon poking around, feel free to click on the map to see what neat stuff can be found in the forest if you dare venture off-trail. Have fun searching for yesterday's debris.
