Weekly Update

August 11, 2017

Hello one and all! We are still enjoying a very nice summer here in North Easton.  Even though the days have gotten warm, the nights have been very comfortable!
 

I hope you will have an opportunity to drop by during our Open House this Sunday from 1-5 p.m. at the Museum!  On exhibit are some photos of the former Hobart Ames estate and his Ames Plantation in Tennessee.  Also featured is a look at the two homes of Oliver Ames at Sheep Pasture and a summer home at Pride's Crossing, Massachusetts.  Come and enjoy a friendly visit, refreshments, and learn something about Easton! I hope to see you Sunday.

Stay well, enjoy the nice summer, and until next week,
Frank

The manor house at Ames Plantation, home of the National Field Trials for bird dogs.  Winter home of Hobart Ames and his wife Julia.  Once owned by the University of Tennessee, the facility now serves as an experimental farming school and forestry management school.  The property encompasses some 18,000 acres.
