The Trautwein Farm (or The Famr as it was called the last years) was located on 515 Piermont Road in Closter, New Jersey, USA.

The Farm in Closter (still referred to Trautwein Farms by many) has closed it’s doors at 515 Piermont Road as of December 25th 2013. The farm has been serving the area since the late 1800’s, providing corn, strawberries, broccoli, pumpkins, asparagus, and rhubarb which were sold by the Trautwein family at a roadside stand. After purchasing the farm from the Trauwein family in 2002, the farm has been selling in-season, locally grown produce, baked goods, cold salads, sandwiches and more.

A new version of The Farm will be opening down the block in Closter Commons sometime later this year featuring more varied prepared foods, an expanded bakery and increased gourmet cheeses according to owner Ted Sollod. Fortunately for many fans they will continue to serve their homemade doughnuts.

The farm landscape in Closter has changed significantly in the last few years, with the greenhouse transformation (and subsequent public uproar of) Brooks Farm on Hickory Lane. Also the Abram Demaree Homestead launched their Country Farm Stand store a few years ago serving local, organic produce and prepared foods fives days a week with food sourced from their 14-acre farmland.

Feast at Round Hill is located at 110 Round Hill Road in Washingtonville, New York, USA.

Round Hill House dates back to the era of Daniel Brewster (1764–1841) a direct descendant of William Brewster, who came to America on the Mayflower in 1620.

Daniel Brewster built Round Hill between 1800–1820. Daniel had a son Thomas (1787–1856) who married Nancy Seely in 1819. They both lived and died here on the homestead.

Thomas and Nancy had a son, Henry, also born here at the homestead in 1828. There were three children from that son’s union with Harriet Halsey in 1854. All married and remained in the immediate area, one on the board farm, then part of Round Hill. Another married the daughter of Alden Goldsmith who then lived in the beautiful home on Route 208 known as Walnut Grove. Alden Goldsmith was the owner and trainer of the world-renown trotting champion, Goldsmith Maid.

The second son, Walter, who became a supervisor of the town of Blooming Grove, married a minister’s daughter, Elizabeth Hathaway. The Reverend Hathaway was then the pastor of historic Blooming Grove Church. The marriage of Elizabeth and Walter Brewster produced a son, Henry.

Today, Round Hill Road is a popular wedding location!

Henry was born in this house in 1898. He took Alice Hookey for his bride. They both lived here and had three daughters, Elizabeth, Nancy and Dorothy.

It is interesting to note that all these early Brewster men brought their wives home to Brewster house.

The house was sold in 1923 to Edward Van Horn. At that time the columns, brick wall and steps were added. The house was later sold to the Maloof family.

The house lay dormant for a while, and became a prominent restaurant in the 1960’s and 1970’s (Round Hill Restaurant, then Quail’s Hollow Restaurant).

In 1998 it was purchased and totally renovated by the present owners, Patrick Ruisi and Peter Kupersmith. They proclaim FEAST to be the “final word in catering” based in an exceptional historic Hudson Valley estate.

Washingtonville is a village in the town of Blooming Grove, Orange County, New York, United States. It is part of the Poughkeepsie–Newburgh–Middletown, NY Metropolitan Statistical Area as well as the larger New York–Newark–Bridgeport, NY-NJ-CT-PA Combined Statistical Area. The village is named in honor of George Washington.

The Hudson Valley (also known as the Hudson River Valley) comprises the valley of the Hudson River and its adjacent communities in the U.S. state of New York. The region stretches from the Capital District including Albany and Troy south to Yonkers in Westchester County, bordering New York City.

Yates Cider Mill is a cider mill located on East Avon Road in Rochester, Michigan.

The mill traces its roots to 1863, when it was known as Yates Grist Mill. In order for the mill to utilize water power, the Yates Dam was built. The Yates Mill became the Yates Cider Mill in 1876 when a cider press was installed into the existing water powered process and the Mill began producing apple cider. Custom apple pressing was done for local farmers, orchard owners and landowners who brought their apples to the Mill.

Today visitors to the Yates Cider Mill can watch cider being made, powered by a 26-inch turbine, which was installed in 1894. It is the original turbine from 1894 that is still in use today at the Mill. Recently, the turbine was removed, refurbished and reinstalled in order to preserve history and continue with the original tradition of making cider. A 58-inch culvert carries the water that provides the water power for the turbine underground from the dam across the street to the Mill.

Tyler House is located at the Sherwood Forest Plantation on John Tyler Memorial Highway in Charles City Virginia, USA.

Sherwood Forest Plantation Foundation, is located on the north bank of the James River in Charles City County, Virginia. The main plantation house, built in 1730, was the home of President John Tyler (1790–1862) for the last twenty years of his life. It is located on State Route 5, a scenic byway which runs between the independent cities of Richmond and Williamsburg. The house is located approximately 2.4 km from the river. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1961.

John Tyler (March 29, 1790 – January 18, 1862) was the 10th president of the United States, serving from 1841 to 1845, after briefly holding office as the 10th vice president in 1841. He was elected vice president on the 1840 Whig ticket with President William Henry Harrison, succeeding to the presidency after Harrison’s death 31 days after assuming office. Tyler was a stalwart supporter and advocate of states’ rights, including regarding slavery, and he adopted nationalistic policies as president only when they did not infringe on the powers of the states. His unexpected rise to the presidency posed a threat to the presidential ambitions of Henry Clay and other Whig politicians, and left Tyler estranged from both of the nation’s major political parties at the time.

The Wren Building is located at the College of William & Mary on Jamestown Road in Williamsburg, Virginia in USA.

The Wren Building is the signature building of the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Along with the Brafferton and President’s House, these buildings form the College’s Ancient Campus. With a construction history dating to 1695, it is the oldest academic building in continuous use in the United States. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960.

The Sir Christopher Wren Building at William & Mary is the oldest college building still standing in the United States and the oldest of the restored public buildings in Williamsburg. It was constructed between 1695 and 1700, before Williamsburg was founded, when the capital of the colony of Virginia was still located at Jamestown, and the tract of land between the James and York rivers which was to become Williamsburg was populated by crude timber buildings and known as “Middle Plantation”.

The Wren Building has been gutted by fire three times — in 1705, 1859 and 1862. Each time the interior of the structure was rebuilt, and for more than three centuries, it has been “the soul of the College.” In the building, generations of William & Mary students have attended classes and lectures, enjoyed meals and attended chapel services. Classes are still held in the Wren Building, which also is home to several faculty offices.

To prepare the Wren Building for its fourth century of use, the university completed a comprehensive renewal and replacement project in 1999-2000. The major components of the project were restoration of the architectural features such as floors and paneling; replacement of mechanical systems; safety upgrades; and repair and stabilization of the walls and foundation.

Today the Wren Building is used as an academic building with housing faculty offices on the third floor and classrooms throughout the building.

Le Mans Raceway was a Track Ride built by US manufacturer Arrow Dynamics formerly located at Busch Gardens Williamsburg in Williamsburg, Virginia, USA.
Le Mans Raceway officially opened in 1975, along with the park. On June 30, 2006, Busch Gardens Williamsburg announced that Le Mans Raceway would be closing to make room for a new attraction set to open in 2007. Le Mans Raceway would officially close on July 5. Officials gave a loving sendoff to the ride, saying goodbye to the 49 recreated antique racing cars that had traveled nearly 10 million miles in 31 years. After its removal, it would be replaced by Griffon.

Le Mans Raceway, one of the park’s original rides is located in the France section of the park. Since opening to the public in 1975, the ride has been popular with guests of all ages.
The cars, modeled after the 1913 Stutz Bearcat, have molded fiberglass bodies and were built on steel frames in California.
Each is powered by an eight horsepower gasoline engine that has been replaced approximately every five-years due to high ridership and the relative lifespan of a go-cart like engine.
The cars follow one of three 2,000-foot tracks, accumulating a total of nearly 200,000 miles per car since the park opened 31 years ago. The five-gallon fuel tanks are filled each morning and last for 12 hours of continuous driving.
“The mileage total for the entire fleet equates to nearly 400 trips around the Earth or 2600 excursions from New York to Paris,” said Larry Giles, vice president of design and engineering for Busch Gardens Europe and Water Country USA.

Busch Gardens Williamsburg (formerly known as Busch Gardens Europe and Busch Gardens: The Old Country) is a 1.55 km2 amusement park located in James City County near Williamsburg, Virginia, United States. Located approximately 100 km northwest of Virginia Beach, the park was developed by Anheuser-Busch and is now owned by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. It opened on May 16, 1975, adjacent to Anheuser-Busch’s brewery and near its other developments including the Kingsmill Resort complex.

The park is themed to a variety of European country themes and was originally named Busch Gardens: The Old Country.

Looks like that Volvo was sponsor of the Le Mans Raceway?

In 1993, the park was renamed Busch Gardens Williamsburg, and it was briefly named Busch Gardens Europe from 2006–2008. In 2015, an estimated 2.78 million guests attended the park, ranking it twentieth in overall attendance among amusement parks in North America. In addition to its landscaping and European themes, Busch Gardens is widely known for its roller coasters, including Griffon, Loch Ness Monster, Alpengeist, and Apollo’s Chariot, the latter of which was ranked as the fourth best steel coaster in the annual Golden Ticket Awards publication from Amusement Today in 2012.
