  • Charles Lord Shares Farm Stories

    | July 13, 2012

    Yesterday morning, Charles Lord led the History of a Saltwater Farm program for a dozen interested visitors. Not only is Charles the outgoing Facilities Manager and Caretaker of the Wells Reserve, but he is also a member of THE Lord family that purchased Laudholm Farm in 1881. Charles is moving to Germany with his family in August, so this was his last history program of the season.

    The group loved hearing his stories about life at Laudholm. Charles spoke of the nine-hole golf course that used to grace the fields, the grass tennis court in the barnyard, and the walks to the beach house for tea. Charles's grandmother used to do needlepoint and watch from a second floor window of the farmhouse as her family members sailed down the Little River.
