Ken is remembered as an historian and longtime Friend of Hemlock Gorge and author of A Walking Tour of Hemlock Gorge and Makers of the Mold, a full-length illustrated history of the Newton Upper Falls community which borders Hemlock Gorge.

Several speakers, including Friends’ President Brian Yates, recalled Ken’s many contributions to the community, and the dedication concluded with the playing of Taps followed by dessert in the newly re-lit
Stone Building.
