    As the original author states, this trail is intriguing! I would LOVE if anyone has ANY information about the school that used to be there, or what looks like RXR (railroad?)crossing sign on the road, would be able to share! I was just there today, and I didn’t see anything immediate that looked like a flat place large enough for a school. Or railroad tracks for that matter. Anyone know when this road was “decommissioned?” That would be interesting to know, just to see how long the road signs and paint lasts over time, and the road itself. I thought it intriguing that the tree roots were not doing major damage at all, despite what you see on any sidewalk in any major city…

      My understanding is that there was no school nor railroad – this old road was used by road crews for practice painting long after it was not in use. But I’m not an authority on it. The original “highway” in the 1920’s was just local roads forming a semi circle around Boston.
