On Saturday, August 13, over thirty Faulkner descendants gathered for a picnic at the Faulkner Homestead. While most were New Englanders, some had traveled from as far as Indiana and Pennsylvania to meet distant cousins, to be where Col. Francis Faulkner mustered his men on April 19, 1775 and to see the "great hall" where the Justices of the Peace held weddings, funerals, and legal proceedings.
Three new gifts to the Iron Work Farm collection were on display--back in the house they came from -- and will be there for visitors to see from now on.
Iron Work Farm owns the 1707 Faulkner Homestead and 1732 Jones Tavern in South Acton. We serve as the stewards of these precious tangible assets to the historic past. Our mission is to protect, educate and promote historical preservation and the study of South Acton.
