Billings Farm & Museum, Woodstock, VT Photos

The Billings Farm & Museum in Woodstock, VT, was once a progressive and prominent dairy farm run by the Billings family who lived in a mansion across the road (now a National Historical Park). However, since the farm was not given as part of the NHP, it is now run as a separate house museum and farm museum which still keeps cattle and horses. The museum has a fine collection of early farm machinery which well explains the American farm industry.
