The Dudley Farm was built in 1844 by Erastus Dudley, a prosperous North Guilford farmer, and gristmill and tannery owner, and is maintained as a late-19th-century farm museum. Tours of the farmhouse, including stories of the home’s inhabitants, introduce visitors to life in the year 1900 and bring the past alive. The barns and outbuildings, along with animals representative of the period, give a unique glimpse into the life and work on a family farm. The museum’s grounds include period flower and herb gardens, picnic tables, a farm garden, meadows, and woods which all evoke a gentle sense of the past. The Dudley Barrows Woods trail begins beyond the farm’s livestock area at the edge of the woods. (See also under Hiking Trails and Historic Sites).
