Sunday Stills-BARNS

I have not been able to get out & shoot this year due to weather & some personal events. Here are a few file images. They were taken from local historic places in Westchester.
More are found HERE, my Gallery.



Philipsburg Manor

Philipsburg Manor is a small historic manor, gristmill museum located in Tarrytown NY along the Hudson River. The manor dates back to 1693 & was built by Frederick Philipse. The next two images from the Manor, the outside & inside of the barn found on the grounds.

The next 3 images are from Muscoot Farms located in Somers. It was a "Gentleman's Farm" owned by the Hopkins family, used as a dairy farm between 1880-1924 & a summer estate. In 1924 the family moved there as their year-round home & continued to operated the dairy farm till 1967. Westchester County acquired the property in the late 60's & is now an Interpretive Farm.

I have enjoyed reflecting on all photo's since my last visit. The artist painting is a great way to give a sense of the atmosphere at the beautiful landscape surroundings. On May 8 a storm hit S. IL with 106 mph winds. There was one fatality. I was without electricity for 9 days where I live. Now I am back to doing work on my home addition. I hope to start getting the siding on soon. mark/salty

what's an Interpretive Farm ? My brother, a lawyer had a gentleman farm. It didn't last long, the girld enjoyed the houses and the pet pig.

Thanks for visiting my site.

It is a teaching farm.

From the dictionary;
a teaching technique that combines factual with stimulating explanatory information - natural history interpretation program
