Riverbend, Our Headquarters
We are the very happy owner of a beautiful 23-acre property, known as Riverbend, with almost a half-mile of frontage on the Ipswich River. The property, located in Ipswich on County Road (Route 1A), was generously donated to us by Dr. Joseph R. Petranek, who made it his home for more than 40 years. The property includes a boat dock, trails, green building, water-wise demonstration projects and gardens and offices.
