Farm history: 

The property site was found on one of the original New Hampshire Grant parcel maps, dated 1761.4 The homestead later became Frank and Lucy Mackenzie’s summer house. The main barn is a local landmark, and one of the only historic agricultural buildings on this stretch of road.

Additional notable agricultural buildings on the property include the corn crib and in particular the intact icehouse. The complex as a whole showcases interesting examples of different aspects of agricultural uses for a small Vermont hill farm, with the main barn at its core. 

The farm has been inactive for approximately 3-4 decades, to the best of our knowledge.
