THE FITCHBURG "ROCK WALK"
A PROPOSAL BY PETER CAPODAGLI
|The Rollstone Boulder was part of Fitchburg's landscape for thousands of years before any settlers came to the region and in
more recent times it is well understood to be an iconic and identifying feature of our city. One does not have to dig too deep
to understand the historic connections and influence it has had on the city's character, yet it remains today relatively
unnoticed, under appreciated, and somewhat forgotten. I believe the Boulder, Rollstone Hill, the quarries, and the
connections associated with them, have the potential to draw significant numbers of visitors to our downtown and can be a
"destination" in their own right. We are simply not using them to our advantage. With the proper promotion I believe they
have the potential to be a contributing component to the economic development of the city while adding a good degree of
interest and uniqueness. It is with these thoughts in mind that I am proposing the Fitchburg "Rock Walk".
