Garfield Farm and Inn Museum, Campton Hills – Saturday, June 25, 2016

We had a great morning at Garfield Farm photographing the 1840’s-1890’s house, inn and barns. We also got into a bit of mischief.  Valerie was chased by the roosters. Peggy had a close call with a bull’s horn. We all enjoyed exploring. Another highlight was the presentation given by the Executive Director of The Garfield Heritage Society, Jerry Johnson.  He is the farm’s historian and, having grown up in Campton Township, shared a wealth of information about the area. We can’t thank him enough for giving us this opportunity. We also had a private tour of the Garfield home and Inn. We walked away intrigued with the interesting anecdotes, trivia and facts shared by another of Garfield’s historians, Joe Coleman, dressed in an 1880’s gentleman’s suit and enthused to share the past with us.

Those of us who journeyed over to the Colonial Restaurant afterward not only had a great breakfast but shared and talked until 2:00 pm. A great outing!
