Former gentleman's working farm, lovingly maintained in the same spirit of the donor. Part of Morris County Park Commission's system. Not to be missed.

Good place to take children to see a working farm as it exited in the turn of the century. Many, various farm animals, out buildings, classic car and wagons. Hands on experiences.
