My blog has been changed to make it more appealing for those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, cemeteries, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history.

For four years I’ve blogged mostly about my personal genealogy in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. I still will, can’t forget my own roots.

Please check out the labels on the right side for articles. The header tabs at the top are a work in progress.

Appleton Farms, Ipswich, Massachusetts

Appleton Farms "is one of the oldest continuously operating farms in the country, established and maintained by nine generations of the Appleton family." Per their flyer.

1794 House, now used as an Office, Museum and Visitor Center on the 1,000 acre working farm.
Period room in the Visitor Center.
Updated kitchen which will used to give cooking classes, using many of the items they grow. They are even going to make pizza (note: newly purchased item on table).
Lots of trees, fields, fences, and animals such as cows and chickens. They sell homemade cheese, milk and others products here.
Entrance to the dairy and miscellaneous barns.
Above photo was taken from inside the below picture.

I'm thinking fall will be a nice time to visit again. Can't wait to see the colors.
