HELP US RAISE THE ROOF
Lundale Farm is seeking vital public support to preserve its historic farmhouse and springhouse that serve as housing for farmers, the board’s meeting space, and storage for the farm’s historical files. The public is asked to help the farm “raise the Roof!” in an effort to preserve the structures registered with the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Maintaining the aging buildings is the non-profit’s greatest financial challenge as this infrastructure is critical to the small farmers that call the farm home to grow local vegetables, fruits, dairy, and meats. Lundale Farm supports sustainable agriculture by connecting farmers to available land and housing, and providing educational opportunities about sustainable agriculture to farmers and the public.
According to the National Trust, “The house is a fine example of a well preserved late eighteenth century local farmhouse which grew to accommodate the needs of the owners.” The farmhouse was originally built in two sections, with the first being built in 1796. The springhouse is the earliest structure on the property, built by James Pugh sometime after he purchased the property in 1713. A springhouse was built in the cellar of the house below two floors of living space plus an attic.
