Dudley Farm, The

The last family member, David Dudley, gave the farm to the North Guilford Volunteer Fire Company upon his death in 1991. Lamenting the disappearance of farm life in the face of the rapid development of the late 20th century, the Volunteer Fire Company decided to establish a farm museum to preserve the region's agricultural heritage. Thus was born the Dudley Foundation, a nonprofit, member supported organization that maintains, through the work of volunteers, the Dudley Farm as a late 19th century farm museum. The restored farm house, barns, and grounds allow visitors to experience life as it once was.
