Farms Finis.

The Salem County Farms Recording Project is now complete! That is, this grant project is complete. I hope to continue recording farms in Down Jersey in the future. I have only scratched the surface, and there is so much more to discover and preserve.

The report is available here for reading and download. It includes 29 drawings of farmhouses and outbuildings in addition to the narrative descriptions and history on the NJ SHPO survey forms.

If you want to order a printed copy of the report (it's 163 pages), go here.

The drawings are available by themselves as 24x36 inch drawings:
Wyatt Farm
Wistar Farm
Watson Farm

This project was assisted by a grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, a division in the Department of State, State of New Jersey, a Fieldwork Grant from the Vernacular Architecture Forum, and an in-kind match of services from the Center for Historic Architecture and Design, University of Delaware. Thank you, funders!
