Brookfield voters to vote on Gurski Referendum Sept. 7

Sep 3rd, 2010 | By | Category: Preservation


The Gurski Homestead property on Obtuse Hill Road has been termed one of Brookfield’s crown jewels. It is the site of an 1890 farmhouse, an antique barn, a historic cemetery, a 1940s forge, and, for the last two years, the town’s community garden, as well as approximately 80 additional acres of open space with beautiful vistas, stone walls, and a brook.

On Sept. 7, voters in Brookfield will have the opportunity to vote for an appropriation for restoration of the farmhouse that will enhance this property and prepare it to be an educational center about farming and its part in the history of Brookfield. For this to happen, the farmhouse and the barn must be in useable condition.
