We stopped here to view the windmill and to see what the farm was all about. Unfortunately, it's December and the farm is closed. It was also raining -- we didn't walk the trails, but they looked interesting!

Prescott Farm is a quiet location that is filled with history. The windmill has never been open when I have been there. Once, the small front building was open. Reading the signs provided good insights. I love to bring my kids to feed the ducks-...More
