1. Visiting the Hale Farm.
The "Farm" is long gone but the homestead itself is quite picturesque. While I was there taking the photo of the marker itself, a gentleman came out to talk to me. He's the tour-guide of this 300+ year old home and he lives there too!
Tours are by appointment and only cost US$5.00. I was unable to take the time for the tour but would have liked to.
For visitors unfamiliar with the area, use your GPS! There's a number of small streets that go this-way and that-way when you're trying to get to there.
