Join us for a tour at Martin House Farm, a rare example of an early 19th century farm which still retains the character of its original setting. It consists of the house, two barns and cultivated fields surrounded by dry stone walls and woodlands. The home was lived in continuously by Martin family members for over 200 years. In 1930, it was given to The National Society of The Colonial Dames in The Commonwealth of Massachusetts by Susan Taber Martin Allien, an eighth-generation Martin and a member of the New York Society of The Colonial Dames. In 1979, the Martin House Farm was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, an official list of cultural resources worthy of preservation.
