Description

The Tankville Schoolhouse was a historic one room school house that has been restored and is now a community center. The small loop trail (called Vince's Walk) travels through a mixed forest. At the back of the loop there is a monument that is a large stone slab that forms a bench. This bench is engraved with 'In Memory of Vince Sunderland'. A side trail called Malcolm's Way is closed. This trail formerly crossed a bog with several boardwalks, but the boardwalks are in disrepair and the grass has completely taken over the trail is places.
