Buckland Farmstead/Historical Mine
The preservation of the Westfall Road Buckland Farmstead property is of great interest to the members of Historic Brighton. A farmhouse of simple design and brick construction exemplifies the Brighton farm community. The history of the two main occupations of the nineteenth and early twentieth century Brighton, brick making and agriculture, are represented here.
Saving the farmhouse is about saving the farm, saving the land, saving the crops, saving the animals, saving the barns, saving a way of life…saving in history…saving the farmhouse is saving a structure to give voice to the Brighton Farms past.
