The Gatsby Summer Afternoon "In the Spirit of Historic Preservation"
Thank you to all who participated in 2011. It was truly a relaxing afternoon. We will not be hosting this event in 2012
Buckley Homestead County Park is 620 acres, a major portion of which functions as a living history site serving thousands of visitors each year. The original farmstead was established in 1849 when the Buckley family purchased the original 80 acres of farmland to create a home for their four children. The home and its accompanying agriculture buildings remained in the Buckley Family until 1977 when 160 acres were donated with the purpose of preserving the farming heritage for the public. Upon her death, Mrs. Pearce left the remaining homestead to the park system. The Buckley Homestead is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
