The Farm at the Santanoni Preserve in Newcomb, NY in the Adirondacks was huge.  It was maintained by a staff of caretakers and a head farmer who lived at this “new” Farmhouse.  This structure overlooked the dairy barn and had large rooms inside.  The Farm provided the Pruyn family and guests by having pigs, sheep, cows, chickens and vegetables.  Santanoni Preserve was established in 1892 to Robert C. Pruyn, a prominent bank executive in Albany.  The preserve had 12,900 acres and we are only 1/3 the way into the preserve by horse-drawn wagon so far.
