Sunday, April 23 2-4 PM Carriage House at Lee’s Farm-Community Room 134 Boston Post Road

Wayland native and WHS life-member Bob Dorey will talk about Wayland’s truck farms and roadside stands and their operation during the 1900’s. Wayland farms–many now residential developments such as “Plainview Estates,” Decatur Road, Damon Farms, Moore Road–produced vegetables, dairy products, and livestock for local and Boston markets through much of the twentieth century. Drawing from personal experience working as a teenager at local farms, and from information passed down through the years, Bob will discuss local landmarks such as Lee’s Farm Market, Mainstone Farm, Watertown Dairy, Pinky Smith’s Farmstand, Walnut Hill, Harrington’s, and the Hynes’ Farms.
