Built circa 1780, this historic site abutting Snake Den State Park continues to be a working farm, run by the Dame family. It offers the opportunity to compare exhibits of historic farm equipment (circa 1870 to 1915), with current farming practices.
A trail on the property runs past the family cemetery, through a former orchard, and past a pasture. Signs along the trail tell some of the history of the site.
Hint: Call ahead to plan your visit during hours that you can see the display of farm equipment. Visit after a snowfall and bring your cross-country skis to explore the property.
