Get ready for a perfect family day trip at Martin House Farm. Glimpse back into a time of simplicity and immerse in the naturalistic beauty of this rare 18th and early 19th century farm which still retains the character of its original setting. After the house tour, peek into the hay barn and visualize the days gone by when the farmer was storing his hay there for bedding, covering crops, and feeding animals. The fields have been cultivated since the 1700s. Explore all that the surrounding woodlands have to offer, and don’t forget to take a picture in front of the iconic Martin House Farm stone wall. It’s time to go back and see what life was like when this country was being established.


If you hear Von Trapps voices carrying through the wind, that would be our local Joseph Case High School’s Theatre Department! Catch one of the 3 mini-concerts throughout the day, and while you tour the house, keep your ears open for segments of patriotic period music!

 

Martin House Farm is owned and operated by The National Society of The Colonial Dames in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This nonprofit organization is celebrating its 128th year of service, promoting historic preservation, hosting patriotic services, and sponsoring veterans and educational programs focused on early US history.
