In 1992 R. Clarke Smith (1908 - 2001) donated 65 acres of land on East St. to be a Town Forest used for forestry, wildlife habitat, educational and recreational use.  Clarke was a respected attorney in Rutland since 1935.  Born in New York City he was buried with his second wife Mercy (Cunningham) Smith (1903 - 1992) in the Davis-Daggett Cemetery in Washington, Maine.  They had married in 1982 in Rutland.  Clarke's first wife was Barbara (Ware) Smith (1906 - 1980). 

Below is the Nov. 7, 1992 Rutland Herald article about the land donation and the Dec. 19, 2001 Rutland Herald obituary.
