Comments:Barrsden Farm's original house was built in 1850. It featured a prize winning winery in 1898. Those former owners, long ago used to take their bed outside in the summer beneath big oaks, now gone. A black snake fell on the bed one night.

Now the second generation living there has a musical instrument building studio, www.mandocello.org.
Owner:Ralph Dammann
CATS Observations:Truly a landmark, this huge, double stem tree shines white across a big field next to Route 20. It is in good health, with its vines recently cut from the base.
