Located on a picturesque hill top in the hamlet of Tarbellville, in the Town of Mount Holly, this early farm gives a good sense of the kind of working/living arrangement that characterized the Mount Holly landscape during the last century and was the center of social and economic life. This farm was part of Marshall Tarbell’s rake, hoe and fork handle manufactory that produced more rakes in 1860’s than any other in New England.
