The big open field was once a horse track and is now used to grow crops and to achieve a healthy AG exemption on the taxes! The original 1730 section is like entering a museum. Known now as the Tavern Room is the original kitchen and dining room and upstairs is a bedroom with an exposed beam ceiling.
