   These photos cannot begin to represent the Waters Farm beauty with it's magnificent landscapes and historic charm. Old stone walls, the useful and attractive Darling barn, the old Blacksmith Shop or the large, red main house listed on the National Register of Historic Places all provide an inspiring look into life of yesteryear. The  breathtaking view of Lake Manchaug and the corralled fields of horses create an almost unparalleled panorama of New England at its best!

Six generations of the same family, spanning three centuries spent their lives at this home and farm. From the days of Colonial rule through the Industrial Revolution, the Civil War and on through the World Wars. The home, built by Stephen Waters in 1757, is filled with history in every corner, from the beehive oven to the wrought iron castings or whale oil lamps. Each room brings you back to times almost forgotten but kept intact through the generous donor Dorothea Waters Moran, last descendant of Stephen Waters.
