    The 60-acre property, once owned by three generations of the artistic Weir family, includes the Weir House, Weir and Young Studios, barns, gardens, and Weir Pond. A colonial revival Sunken Garden and the Weir Garden (created in 1915) which includes a fountain, sundial and rustic cedar fence are preserved and maintained by local garden clubs and other volunteers. Their goal is to present the property as it appeared to Weir and the other artists who lived and painted there.
