Braveboat Harbor Farm (York, Maine)
This land was granted to Francis and Eleanor Raynes in 1638 and was farmed by their descendants continuously until 1910. It was then abandoned except for a summer cottage built about 1935. In 1949, the fields were cleared, the cottage was moved, the gardens were established, and the present house was built. The garden includes naturalized areas, a formal garden, lilac allee, a kitchen garden, and magnolia garden
Several slides not shown include the house.
Persons associated with the property and garden include: Francis and Eleanor Raynes (former owners, 1638-?); and Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Hosmer, Jr. (former owners, 1950-1999).
