I spent 14 years restoring this property and improving the soils to make a clean sustaining organic farm. I had it registered with the U.S. Department of agriculture to get grants and technical assistance to further improve the property. Before retiring here in 2007 I spent 40 years restoring historic properties for the National park service which gave me skills to restore the 1799 house to it's current fine condition. As far as the farm goes i wasn't able to keep moving forward with the farm development because of my caregiver duties helping my wife who recently passed away. The wooded areas and one large field needs reclearing of 5 years of overgrowth and trails can be cleared thru the woods for any type growing or campsites. The possibilities are endless including turning the house into a tavern style restaurant, Air BnB. etc. House is ADA Handicap accessible.
