This farm lies not far from the Delaware on the PA side. it sits on state forest land and is on a hiking trail. Every building has a do not enter sign and for once I followed the rules. There’s 6-7 buildings and there was plenty of beauty to take pictures of outside. Judging by the price of the gas on the pump I’d say this farm was abandoned (or bought out) around the early 70’s, making it as older then me. The only thing of true note was the old fashioned drying press I found in one building. You ran the clothes thru two rollers and it squeezed the water from the clothing. There’s a fair amount to see here and I enjoyed the trip.

    The historical society and friends of marie zimmerman controls the property. the zimmerman family owned the farm and when marie (famous artist) died in the 70s, it was given to the feds. They have recently restored the mansion and you are able tour it on weekends in the summer.

    Interesting! Check out the abandoned home on Old Dingmans Road (Layton/Sandyston area) on the NJ side of Dingmans Bridge. Going up the hill, it is on the right side.. VERY interesting place. Also the old Michaels farm on Mosiers Knob Road near Shawnee..

          Yes, you are permitted on the grounds but not in buildings. Most of the homes in the park are remnants from the Tocks Island fiasco where thousands lost their homes to eminent domain when the Army Corps of Engineers wanted to build a dam.
