Tom Davis, local entrepreneur, is opening his farmstead on Lamb Hill Road to the public again this year, on Saturday September 14, and will have most of his collection of vintage machinery up and running. Machines designed and built in the late 19th century to do everything from cutting and splitting firewood to churning butter will be displayed. This rare opportunity will also include machinery brought in by several other collectors.
The farmstead, located at 121 Lamb Hill Road in Bolton, also affords a panoramic view of the Adirondacks to the north. The event, under the sponsorship of the Warrensburgh Historical Society, runs from 10 AM to 4 PM. Admission is free to all. Picnic refreshments will be provided.. Attendees are encouraged to “Bring-a-dish to share” but this is optional.
