Stacks of photo albums sit on the table next to the fireplace at Selcombe and capture the daily life of a summer place in Brookline, Vermont over the last one hundred years. Five generations have loved this 750-acre hill farm with its swimming hole, 1819 brick Cape and English-style barn. Each generation has pasted in photos and recorded a caption and dates in neat handwriting of visits to the farm. The photos change from black and white to color over time, but the stories remain the same. Below are a few images snapped sometime between 1928-1938.
Just as it was one hundred years ago, Selcombe is suitable to practice sustainable agriculture, keep horses or just to breathe. The investment value of the property is underpinned by just over 700 forested acres.
