Annual Meeting Weekends
A brief history … who we are
Members of the Weeks family lived in the brick farmhouse continuously from 1710 to 1968, when the property was sold out of the family. When the property was again offered for sale in 1975, a group of descendants and friends formed a non-profit corporation to acquire the house and two acres of land. A year later, they were able to purchase the adjoining 31 acres, making it possible to preserve the original rural setting.
Today the Weeks Brick House and Gardens is pleased to be an asset for the entire community, with its gardens, walking trails, and conservation land open daily from dawn to dusk. Every year in late summer, the organization’s annual meeting presents educational sessions and opens part of the house for tours. (For both security and income, the house is occupied year-round by a tenant.)
Thanks to the dedication and support of loyal members and volunteers, the organization can look back on a full list of accomplishments in the 35 years since purchasing the Weeks Brick House and farm.
