Period buildings include a farm house, outhouse, milk house and workshop powered by a working waterwheel. An 1870's barn was painstakingly disassembled and reassembled on site, and visitors can also see an original 1930's power plant.
Be part of making history! Our 1930s Lost Catskill Farm is entering Phase 2 of expansion...and we need your help! What does Phase 2 include? So much!
