Photo Archivist's Selection of the Month: May 2009
Farms in Stamford
Brushwood Farm, Dr. Walter Wood, Woodbine Rd.
|The property was at Woodbine, Brushwood, and Laurel roads and later largely disappeared under the Laurel Reservoir (map). An undated note says that "the only remaining buildings are 2 tenant houses at corner of Woodbine and Mather Rd., and cow barn behind them, part of barn being used as horse stable for riding horses. Whole area now called Woodbine Acres, developed by Mr. Bacca." Another note says, "the house on Laurel Rd. was owned by a Mr. Gillespie before Dr. Wood bought a tract of land – over 200 (illegible) – south from Laurel Rd. 1911–12."
