Annual Report 2018
1. The Dudley Farm Museum received a $3,053 grant from The Guilford Foundation to support
the development of the Museum's Interpretation Plan. The goal of this plan is to use the land,
buildings and collections of the Dudley Farm Museum to explore the agricultural history of
North Guilford, CT by developing an understanding of the operation of the Dudley family farm
from 1870 to 1910, the roles/work of family members and the importance of farming in
Guilford’s past, present and future. We are very grateful for this support!
2. Grants were also received from the 1772 Foundation to support our work on the Big Barn
Project, and also a grant from the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven to help fund
the reconstruction of an icehouse and inclusion of public restrooms. These projects will add

3. Thanks to a generous grant from the Summer Hill Foundation we will be able to complete
several smaller projects this year at the Farm, including our reconstructed milk house and public

Phase I and Phase II of the Big Barn Project are DONE, and soon we will see the beginning of Phase III!
Now on to the next part. As you know, money doesn’t grow on trees (and we even planted money
plants in an attempt to make more!) so donations to the project are gratefully received. Come by, look
at our beautiful barn, gaze at our gardens—take a seat—maybe have a picnic. The Dudley Farm is a
quiet space in this crazy world.
